Collection containers should not be set out for collection more than 24 hours prior to the collection date and should be removed from the collection point within 24 hours of collection date.
The only holidays that affect pickup are Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Service is pushed back one day i.e. If Christmas falls on a Monday, then houses normally serviced Monday are serviced Tuesday, Tuesday houses are serviced Wednesday, etc.
Examples of acceptable bulky items include:
- Large toys
- Do-It-Yourself project waste
- Carpeting in bundles
Residents are encouraged to choose a recycling option for bulky items when that is available. For example, many appliances can be recycled with local metal recyclers.
Yard waste is collected on the same day as trash collection.
Acceptable yard waste includes: leaves, yard trimmings, garden debris, and small brush (less than four (4) inches in diameter and four (4) feet in length) which results from residential landscaping maintenance.
Yard waste cannot be loose; it must be in a bag or container, or bundled and tied. Weight must not exceed 50 pounds per container or bundle. Yard waste should be placed at the collection location near the trash cart. The weekly limit for yard waste is three (3) cubic yards.
Soil, dirt, sand, concrete, large stumps, shrubs with intact root balls, and treated wood are not considered yard waste and will not be collected as such. Special collection services are available for these and similar items, and that collection must be arranged directly with Republic Services. Payment for such services will be the responsibility of the resident. Residents may also use their free landfill privileges to dispose of such items from their residences.
