Christmas Tree Pickup

Republic should pickup Christmast trees - stripped of ALL tinsel and other decorations - on the first and second Wednesday of January. Please have your tree at the curb by dawn on those days.

Recycling Service

Recycling is collected by Republic on Thursdays only. Recyling must be placed separately from trash (please do not put trash and recycling piles near each other). However, recycling is single stream - meaning you do not need to sperate plastics, aluminium, etc.


Yard Waste

Yard waste, including grass clippings, tree limbs and leaves, are collected on Wednesdays only. Tree branches must be bundled in 4 ft. lengths or less. Grass and leaves must be in bags, preferably bio-degradable bags availabe from local home improvement stores>
