A message from Republic regarding trash and recycling
Officials at Republic Services are asking all customers to keep trash and other materials secure in plastic bags for collection to reduce potential risk to crews.
Customers should place all materials in plastic bag and not in boxes or other unsecured receptacles, making sure the bags are secured tightly to prevent the scattering of waste materials. This also applies to customers who use trash cans or carts. Materials should not be placed loosely into trash cans or carts.
Recycling materials should continue to be placed in the rolling bins. Do not bag recycling materials.
Republic Services is also requesting that residents refrain from placing large amounts of bulk and yard waste out for collection at this time. Crews are expecting an increase in residential trash volumes during the current public health emergency.
"Our focus is to maintain the collection of normal household materials that might pose a health risk to our workers and the community at large," officials said. "We know this places an imposition on our customers, but we believe these changes are necessary given the current situation."
