The city of Richmond’s annual spring cleanup campaign, which was scheduled for April 11, 18, and 25, has been canceled. The city still plans to hold its fall clean-up campaign.

The document shred event has been rescheduled for Oct. 24. Residents are asked to not place bulky items at the curb. They will not be picked up.

Republic Services, which collects waste in the city of Richmond, announced a temporary change in the recycling and bulky waste pick-up services. The recycling and bulky waste services have been canceled until further notice.

Republic Services focus is on continued daily operation. Since families are sheltering at home and volume has increased dramatically, some adjustments to normal operations are required in order to ensure collection services. There will be no change to the trash service which is picked up twice-a-week.

Other news:

• No recycling service on Fridays.

• No bulky waste service for the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

• Trash service will remain the same, there is no change. Carts should be curbside by 7 a.m., with 3 feet of space between any other objects such as cars, mailboxes, fences, etc.

• Green waste collection will continue; however, anticipate delays in service. By taking the following steps, residents can help minimize these delays:

• Mulch leaves and grass clippings instead of bagging them for disposal.

• Limit the amount of pruning and aesthetic tree trimming to only what’s essential.

• If utilizing a landscape company, ensure that all green waste is collected and hauled off by the contractor.
