Garbage Pick-Up News

Garbage Pick-Up Notification to City of Marion Residents:

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.
