That's according to Rapid Removal Vice President of Operations, Andy Burress. He also indicated persons needing assistance with their trash pickup should contact the Rapid Removal office.

Burress explained, when there's an observed holiday for the trash collection workers, the trash will be picked up the following day. He said the affected customers will not have their service skipped a week.

Information provided by Rapid Removal to the City of Trenton shows the company providing curbside trash pickup and recycling in several area communities. The information also showed Rapid Removal providing 23 full and part time jobs with 16 of those persons residing in Grundy County.

It was noted at the November 25th Trenton City Council meeting, Rapid Removal has an office, 7 trucks, and plans for a transfer station---all at Trenton. Payroll was described as $322,000.

There's also a storage building at Trenton. Bids are being sought for an office building.

With the addition of Trenton to area communities where Rapid Removal provides residential trash service, Burress told KTTN the company will be employing 2 to 3 more persons, 2 additional trucks are on order. The vehicles are to be located at Trenton.

Burress said Rapid Removal is waiting for the Department of Natural Resources to approve its plans for a transfer station at Trenton.

In the meantime, the trash is taken to transfer stations at Bethany and Chillicothe.

Rapid Removal also plans to offer a yard waste collection service for an additional charge after the DNR approves the company's composting request. Those plans have not yet been finalized. An announcement is to be made in the media when the yard waste collection service becomes available.

Rapid Removal, in addition to providing trash collection in area communities, has provided trash collection for some businesses in Trenton in recent years.

The City of Trenton, in September, announced it's giving Rapid Removal 10 acres of land at the north edge of Trenton for the development of a transfer station. It's west of
Rapid Removal's current facilities, which are on 15 acres of land provided by the City to the company in a previous agreement that was announced in 2011.
