Republic Services announces change to bulk item pickup

Bulk item pickup OK with prior scheduling

Starting April 1, Republic Services requests residents schedule in advance any bulky item pickups, instead of leaving it at the curb with their household trash.republic-logo

One large item per week per residence is allowed (no appliances).

The request comes after a switch to automated side loader trucks, said Jennifer Fagan of Republic Services. Bulk items left outside the trash carts will need to be collected using a different truck, she said. Collection day for bulky items will not necessarily be the same as the customer’s regular trash pickup day, she added, and is currently set to be on Mondays.

Bulk item pickup does not apply to additional household trash left outside the trash carts. Residents must bag their household trash and put all trash to be collected in the designated trash cart.

To set up you bulk item pickup, call Republic at 800-431-1507.
