Next Tuesday, Feb. 4, is supposed to be the first day of the new recycling pickup schedule in Orange, but the events of this week have many residents confused and wondering if the new schedule already has begun.
It seems that the truck missed some homes on Wednesday and came by on Thursday, which, in some neighborhoods may actually be the NEW designated pick up day. I learned this from responses to a Facebook Post on Orange Live
Here’s What Happened:
According to Orange Recycling Committee Chairman Mitch Goldblatt, Citi Carting owns two trucks that efficiently do the job in Orange, but on Wednesday, while on its route, ONE of the trucks had completed part of its daily pick-ups when it was involved in an accident, rendering it inoperable. So Wednesday’s route was never completed.
The following day (Thursday) the Wednesday route was completed and part of Thursday’s route was done — but not finished.
Today (Friday), Thursday’s route was completed and As much of Friday’s route as possible, was completed. If there are still untouched recycling bins, leave them out, they will be done by tomorrow.
Next week, the New Pick Up Schedule WILL begin as planned.
