If you are an electric customer of the City of Odessa... This affects you. While it is an "Evergy" outage, the work they are doing is in the substation from our transmission feeder line from them.

Everyone will be working as diligently as possible to keep the outage minimal.

While there is never a convenient time to be without power, it's better to be scheduled so that preparations can be made versus the alternate where maintenance is avoided and causes an unexpected prolonged outage.

We are aware of another utility scam claiming to be Evergy and demanding payment within 30 minutes. Please don't provide any personal or banking information over the phone. If you live in the city limits you do not pay Evergy for your electric bill. Please call us at City Hall if you have any questions. With this upcoming outage we just don't want anyone getting confused and falling for the scam.

For all the details and additional information, please visit our website at www.cityofodessamo.com for all of the details.

We may have lost some of our creativity when starting our Trash Updates... and it's not Tuesday so there's that... #TrashTalkTuesday

Regardless, we are waiting on some information back from Republic Services so that we can complete a big ole' post to bring you the most up to date info that we can. In the mean time, we will note that Monday is Labor Day and trash service is scheduled to be delayed one day. We know this statement totally opens the door for comments about the ongoing delays, and we promise we are working on them. Just know for next week, if your normal {insert scheduled here, since nothing seems to be normal anymore} pick up day is Monday it will be Tuesday >> Tuesday will be Wednesday >> Wednesday will be Thursday >> Thursday will be Friday >> Friday will be Saturday.
Stay tuned for a super cohesive updated post.

Republic Services has contacted us today with an update on recycling pick up. Their normal recycling driver has been out sick this week so others are trying to take up the slack. They will be attempting to pick up most if not all of the recycling by the end of the day. Any recycling missed should be picked up on Monday. If you have a missed service that has not been picked up by the end of the day, please email us at [email protected] with your address, what service was missed (trash/recycling), and your normal pick up day. Again we appreciate your patience, and we will continue to work through this transition until things return to normal.

Trash Talk Tuesday πŸ“£
We have seen significant decrease in calls for missed trash/recycling pickups as we navigate the transition πŸ™ŒπŸ». Republic Services has notified us though, that the recycling route for today will be running late. Most recycling pick ups will be later this afternoon. If your recycling is normally picked up in the mornings, please leave it out as it will be later today before they are able to complete those routes.

Trash Talk Tuesday πŸ“’
{The latest information from Republic Services}Republic Services was unable to run a recycling truck yesterday. They do have one in town today, picking up missed recycling and as much of today’s routes as possible. We have sent them the list of missed pick ups that we had as of late last night. They have a truck in town working on those. If you have a missed service that has not been picked up yet, please email us at [email protected]. Please include your address, what service was missed (trash/recycling), and your normal pick up day.
Again we appreciate your patience and we will continue to work through this transition until things return to normal.

We want to assure you that our team is committed to working through the transition of our solid waste contract. We feel that to help ease the concerns with the recent delays and inconveniences the best way to do so is through communication. Here is the most up to date information from our conversations with Heartland Waste / Republic Services:
- There are driver shortages as not all Heartland Drivers made the transition to Republic Services.
- There are some route discrepancies in what was provided to Republic thus the drivers have incomplete routes which presents challenges as they navigate those routes.
- They are working at uploading Heartland's routing system into Republics' as they used different systems. Once their IT department has this completed, it will allow their operations team to properly route our community to their standards.

They have assured us these delays are temporary as they work through the transition. Republic Services pride themselves on reliable service to all of the municipalities they serve. There are members of the Heartland team making the transition and are a great resource for the Republic team.

As a City, we are committed to working for you through this transition. We are communicating regularly with our solid waste contractors and will in turn communicate to you all.

If you have a missed trash or recycling pick up to report, please do so at [email protected]. Please provide us your address, what service was missed (trash/recycling), and what your normal route day is. We would like one centralized communication portal to be more effective in our response so that nothing gets missed.

Thank you again for your patience and we assure you we are here to assist.
