Temporary Changes to Solid Waste Services due to COVID-19

To ensure the health and safety of our community and Republic Service’s waste collection crews, the following changes are being made to residential trash and recycling collection:

  • Bagging trash: Due to the potential risk to waste collection crews, all trash must be in secured plastic bags (not in boxes or other unsecured receptacles) before being placed out in trash cans for collection. Please make sure the bags are secured tightly to prevent the scattering of waste, and that no materials are loose in trash cans. This does not apply to recycling, please continue to place your recycle materials loosely in your recycling carts.
  • Suspension of bulk/brush collection: Due to an expected increase in residential trash volumes, bulk and brush collections are suspended. This will ensure the collection of normal household waste that poses a health risk to residents.

Trash and recycling will remain on a regular collection schedule at this time.

These changes will go into effect, Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 7:00 a.m. and will remain in effect until further notice.
