TRASH COLLECTION: Republic Services is informing customers that because of the current coronavirus situation, effective immediately there will be some changes in the residential trash services. All trash must be bagged and tied and weigh less than 50 pounds and placed in a Republic cart. Republic will not service any trash outside of the containers as they are trying to limit exposure to drivers during this time.
