​​IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING TRASH COLLECTION FOR ST. MARTINS RESIDENTS:


St. Martins has agreed to a new 5-year contract with Republic Services for trash collection services.  The new contract will begin March 1, 2021.  The rate for trash service will drop to $14.98 monthly.  If you currently have trash service from Republic, your rate will drop on the anniversary date of your service following March 1, 2021.


The annual Spring & Fall clean-ups will still take place, but with some changes.


St. Martins will no longer work with St. Martins 8th graders or Boy Scouts to pick up trash along the streets.  While this worked well for many years, we no longer feel it is a good idea to have kids walking along streets picking up trash due to safety concerns.


The clean-ups will be for St. Martins subscribers to Republic Trash Service.  The pick-ups will be curbside at the subscribers homes.   Eligible items will be the same as before and a list of non-eligible items will be published prior to the spring clean-up this year.


Subscribers should notice no difference in service - just a lower rate.  The rate will increase no more than 3% each year of the 5-year contract.
