RARITAN TWP., NJ – If you’re garbage is piling up, you’re not alone, as TAPinto reported yesterday.

Raritan Township Administrator Don Hutchins said he was first alerted to the issue about a month ago after Republic Services acquired Premier Disposal in May. But many Premier customers – along with some existing Republic customers – say their refuse isn’t being collected.

Hutchins said yesterday that Mayor Jeff Kuhl was finally contacted by Republic’s General manager. He apologized, Hutchins said, and promised extra trucks would be sent to the township today.
