Republic Services curbside collections for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day will not be changed this year as these holidays fall on Saturday. However, due to excessive trash disposal typical at these holidays, there may be delays in collection the following week. Any missed pickups will be completed the next business day. Please wait to report a missed pick up until 10 a.m. the next morning

What To Expect On Pick Up Days Following Holidays:
Due to the increased volume of trash and recycling following a holiday, Republic Services will be working extra hard to ensure that all customers are serviced. Please expect the following conditions to occur:
Trash pickup is still limited to ONLY blue cart contents with lid closed and properly placed with no obstructions. Trash placed outside of the blue cart and overfull carts will not be collected. See drop off options below for excess trash disposal or sign up for curbside recycling to divert recycling material away from your trash container
Your trash may be picked up earlier or later than the usual time so please set at curb before 6 a.m.
Extra trucks may be working in your neighborhood and may be of a different type than usual. Make sure carts are properly placed with arrows facing the street, five feet from any objects and with no overhead obstructions. Following these guidelines allows any type of truck to collect your material
Trucks may run late into the evening beyond normal work hours
Holiday trash and recycling pickup may be delayed; in this event, this will also delay normal trash and recycling pickups for the week. Any missed pickups will be completed the next business day. Please wait to report a missed pick up until 10 a.m. the next morning

Drop Off Available:
All Hernando County Solid Waste facilities will be closed on December 25, 2021 and January 1, 2021 however, these facilities will be open during normal business hours the remainder of these weeks for residents wishing to dispose of excess trash, recycling or yard waste.
