Place all trash inside the proper carts and make sure that the lids are closed to prevent littering and to protect the contents from weather and pests. 

Trash placed outside of your cart will be subject to an extra collection charge. If you have extra trash that does not fit in your trash cart, please contact Republic Services in advance of your service day for a larger cart or to buy special bags.   The bags can be purchased at Republic Services, located at 881 Energy Way or consider using one of your free annual yard waste and landfill passes whenever you are recycling or disposing of an exceptionally large amount of material.

Republic Services: (619) 421-9400

Proper Container Placement

Place your carts in the street with the wheels against the curb and the arrow on the lid pointing toward the street.  The lid must be closed.  Leave at least 1 1/2 feet between yourtrash, yard waste and recycling containers so the automated collection equipment can easily pickupthe containers.  As a courtesy,please do not park your car in front of containers.  If possible, park off the street on your scheduled service day.
