Good Morning & Happy Holidays.
Republic Services appreciates the continued partnership between our organization and the SUIT.
With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, we wanted to inform you of our holiday schedule to ensure a seamless waste collection service for the Tribe.
Republic Services will be closed on Thursday, November 23rd, 2023, in observance of Thanksgiving Day.
As a result, there will be a one-day delay in our solid waste collection services for the remainder of the week.
Looking ahead to the Christmas and New Year holidays, please be advised that Republic Services will be closed on December 25th, 2023, and January 1st, 2024, respectively. Similar to Thanksgiving, there will be a one-day delay in waste collection services on these dates.
If you have any specific concerns or require further clarification, feel free to reach out to me directly at 505-419-3842.
We value our partnership with the Tribe, and your understanding during these holiday closures is greatly appreciated.
Wishing you and your team a wonderful holiday season.
