Trash collection schedule altered

The City of Decatur’s trash and recycling collection schedule for the week of Jan. 28, has been altered due to the forecast of extremely low temperatures. The forecast of below-zero temperatures makes it dangerous for the city’s trash and collection crews to be outside. The frigid temperatures also impact the operation of the trash and recycling trucks and equipment.

Monday, Jan. 28, routes will run as normal
Tuesday, Jan. 29, routes will run as normal
Wednesday, Jan. 30, route will not run
Thursday, Jan. 31, route will not run
Friday, Feb. 1 – Wednesday and Thursday routes will be collected
Saturday, Feb. 2 – Friday’s route will be collected

The city appreciates your flexibility this week, as employee safety is of utmost importance. For questions, please contact the Decatur Department of Public Works at 260-724-3356.
