2021 Republic Service's What Can Be Recycled- Printable Guide


Your Association Board recently negotiated a new contract with REPUBLIC SERVICES as the old 3 year agreement will expire on June 30, 2021. The old rate was $50.91 for 3 months. That included weekly garbage pick up and recycling pick up every other week. We also sought bids from Washler (They did not submit a bid in spite of repeated phone calls), and Noble County Disposal. The Noble County company is not acceptable because they would require our Association to do the billing for them, and we do not have the volunteer resources to do that. 

Effective July 1, the Republic rate structure has changed. You will be able to get weekly garbage service only for $32.00 for 3 months. If you want to continue having your recycling picked up every two weeks, that price will be an additional $36.00 for 3 months. We were told the charge for NONmembers of the Crooked Lake Association is roughly $85 per quarter. Remember you have to be a 2021 Member of the Crooked Lake Association to get these special lower rates. One option, for example, is to have your garbage only picked up, and take your recycling to the service center near the 4H Park. Your cost would drop to $32 for three months. 

Unfortunately, the invoices Republic has been sending out recently have incorrect rates on them for the period beginning July 1. Republic Services is now aware of the billing problem. Lots of Confusion! Republic is advising you to pay your latest invoice total even though it is not correct. Once you receive your next invoice from Republic around September, you will need to call their Customer Service office at 260-747-4117 or 800-876-9001 to apply for a refund if you overpaid. At that same time, you will need to tell customer service if you do not want recycling pickup anymore, so they can come and pick up your recycle container. We ask for your patience as these changes all work themselves out.
