Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the preventative measures in place which are requiring more families to be at home, Republic Services will be making a service change regarding yard waste effective March 23, 2020 through April 6, 2020.
Recently Republic Services has seen an increase in the amount of household garbage being placed at the curb and because this situation is evolving rapidly, they are not staffed for this kind of increase. In addition to these unprecedented times, it also happens to be the time of year when live oaks shed their leaves, and there have been increases in the number of yard waste bags being placed on the curb as well.
Beginning Monday March 23, Republic Services will be limiting pick up service to one bag of yard waste per household per pickup. The priority during this time is ensuring garbage and recycling waste are off the streets first. As we all work through these changes and continue to adapt to changes around us, Republic Services will continue to explore other options that may increase capacity.
Due to the dynamic nature of this situation Republic Services will reevaluate prior to April 6 to see if it will need to be extended or altered.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation during this time. If you have questions or if you need further clarification, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (210) 619-1100.
