Notice Regarding Your Recycling and Trash Service

April 24, 2020 — On Monday, April 27, Republic Services will resume recycling, bulk and yard waste collection. Recycling carts will once again be treated as recycle only, do not place trash/non-recyclable materials in the cart.

April 13, 2020 —Effective Monday, April 13, Republic Services will be temporarily suspending the collection of recycling, yard waste, and bulk items for the safety of their drivers.

Please limit the amount of material set out each week to only that which will fit inside the cart. Residents may use their recycling container for trash overflow as all recycling carts at the curb will be dumped “as trash” during this time. Once the Governor rescinds the Stay at Home Order, all collection services will return to normal.

Also, Simply Recycling, the “orange bag” textile recycling program, has been suspended until further notice.
