Garbage Pick-Up News

There will be no trash pickup on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th. Monday and Tuesday's trash will be picked up on Tuesday the 30th.

The City of Marion has begun utilizing a one-arm truck for trash pick-up, meaning that cans will be picked up by the arm of the truck.

Residents are asked to take extra care to be sure your garbage can is placed close to the road and out of the way from anything that would block the truck arm movement, including vehicles, mailboxes, etc. Garbage and recycling pick-up schedules remain the same.

If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 870-739-5410.
