Republic Services Running All Collection Routes; Only Collecting Trash and Recycling Inside Cans

Forwarded on behalf of Republic Services

Republic Services is running all collection routes at this time. However, with the onset of COVID–19 and the health concerns in our communities, they have concerns with loose materials around the carts and containers. In order to ensure our driver’s safety, Republic is implementing some temporary guidelines to protect our customers, our drivers and our communities.

Effective Tuesday, March 24:

Residential:

Due to health concerns for the public and our drivers, until further notice Republic will only collect trash that is stored in Republic Carts or personal owned cans.  Extra trash must be bagged or stored in an additional cart or can.

If you have extra recycling or yard waste, it must be in a cart or can.  Republic will not pick up any loose/bundled/bagged material outside a cart or can.

In addition, they are suspending all bulky waste collections until further notice.

Commercial:

Due to health concerns for the Public and our Drivers, until further notice they will only pick up trash that is in your container unless it is bagged.  Anything outside the container that is not bagged will not be collected.

If you have recycling, their drivers will only pick up recycle that is stored inside your container.  They will not pick up anything outside your container.

Thank you for your consideration of the safety of our staff.
