Residents in Fremont and Union City will be without garbage, recycling, and yardwaste service today, Thursday, and tomorrow, Friday, April 5 due to a labor dispute between Teamsters and Allied Waste Services/Republic Services.
Residents with Thursday and Friday pickup service should not place their garbage, recycling, and composting carts out for pick up during these two days. Next week, as garbage service resumes, impacted residents will be able to set out extra trash bags, recyclables, and yard waste from this week, along with their regular carts for pick up.
In Union City, green waste (green) and recycling (grey-brown) cans will be picked up by Tri-CED Recycling.
The information has been posted on those cities’ websites. Newark’s website had no information posted, and a phone message left with a city official was not immediately returned.
