If you live in LaSalle, starting next week you’ll be dealing with some changes in pick-up of yard waste and large items.
Republic Services will still collect regular garbage and recycling in LaSalle. But, to limit its drivers’ exposure during the virus outbreak, the company won’t be picking up yard waste or oversized items until further notice.
For now, LaSalle Mayor Jeff Grove says you can take your yard waste to the city’s drop-off location. You’ll find it by taking Route 6 east, turning left on the Troy Grove Blacktop, and turning left toward the Rockwell Cemetery. Follow the road to the drop-off spot.
Grove says he’s been told Republic is running short on drivers, as some of them in other locations have contracted the virus.
