Mayor Fighting For Resumption Of Bulk Pickup, Dumpsters Will Be Provided For Now


Republic has agreed to provide dumpsters in Vermilion on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week, April 15th through the 17th, according to Mayor Forthofer.

“I am still requesting a resumption of our regular bulk/yard waste pickup,” stated Mayor Forthofer.

“The dumpsters are for the bulk/yard waste items you would have put out for the suspended monthly pick up,” said the mayor.

“I am in conversation with Republic Services, the Erie County Health Department and our Law Director. I have requested resumption of bulk/yard waste pickup per contract,” stated the mayor. “No decision from Republic so far.”

Dumpsters will be emptied each night. Locations are the City Service Department at Devon and Douglas and Showse Park off Edgewater.
