The Franklin DPW has been working with Waste Management throughout the pandemic to minimize disruption to the solid waste/single stream recycling curbside program. However, this week, Waste Management's collection team has been impacted by a severe increase in COVID related absences. At this time, it appears that 2-3 hours of Franklin's trash service will be left incomplete this week. Routes that are not completed today will resume on Monday. A map of the affected areas will be posted at the end of the day.
In the midst of the holiday season, the DPW and the Waste Management team are keenly aware of the unfortunate timing of this delay. It is always our goal to stay on track, and to ensure collection for trash and recycling occurs as scheduled. However, it must be noted that collection delays may occur from time-to-time, over the course of the next several weeks.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes to the residents of Franklin. Rest assured that we are working all the angles to ensure each route is collected on its scheduled collection day.
Stay safe. -- Derek Adams Town of Franklin Department of Public Works Environmental Affairs
