Automated Waste Collection Tips

Do your part when you use your cart!

Where does it go? 

Place your Republic Services cart near the street and 3 feet away from ANYTHING, including other carts or cans. Cars should not be parked on the street on collection day.

Correct cart placement

Close the lid!

All garbage needs to be INSIDE the Republic Services cart with the lid completely closed. Items placed on top, or outside of your cart may cause all of your garbage to remain at the curb. Please bag all small, loose material.
