Over the past 10 days, we have fielded many phone calls in our office regarding the Lincoln Solid Waste transfer site.
Solid waste is an essential service and as such, the Lincoln transfer site will remain open at this time during our normal days and hours; Saturday through Monday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Services have not been suspended but some operational changes may occur. One such change is that the attendant will ask you to see your permit but will not ask you to sign the ticket at this time. To prevent the spread of germs, we are asking that paperwork and permits not be passed back and forth and pens not be shared.
On March 19th, residential trash pickup did not occur due to circumstances unrelated to the current COVID-19 issue. Because of last minute issues beyond anyone’s control, Republic Services was short staffed and could not make the collection route on that particular day. However, they should be fully staffed and operational at this time and your residential pickup should resume as normal.
We continue to evaluate the issue on a daily basis but we are committed to providing the essential service to the Lincoln community while still providing for the health and safety of everyone. We will continue to follow all guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control as well as all orders that may come from the Governor’s Office.
If you have any questions, please call the District Office at 447-8313.
