Holiday Pickups

Holidays with no pick up are: Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. If your regular collection day falls on a holiday, collection will be delayed by one day - Thursday collection will occur Friday.

Missed Pickup

If collection cannot be safely provided due to bad weather and dangerous conditions, any missed service will be collected on your next regularly scheduled collection day. For example, garbage and recycling will be collected one week after the missed collection day. Up to twice the normal amount will be collected at no additional charge.

In the event that a collection is missed, contact Republic Services customer service.

Container Requirements

Garbage carts are provided by Republic Services. Set carts out with handle toward the house and place 2 feet apart from each other. Do not block cars, mailboxes, sidewalks or driveways. Remove containers as soon as possible after collection.

For the drivers’ safety, please no flammable, hazardous, infectious or medical waste in the garbage. Animal waste can be bagged and put in your garbage but should not exceed 10% of the total can volume.
