Republic Services manages the residential solid waste program, commercial solid waste program, and recycling program. The City of Richmond contracts with Republic Services to provide solid waste and recycling services to residents of Richmond in a manner that is safe, efficient, environmentally sound and cost-effective.

Garbage Tips

All solid waste, recycling, heavy item (once-a-month) and lawn/limb compost shall be placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection. Please place cart with 3 feet of space between any other objects such as cars, mailboxes, fences, etc. Items around the garbage cart prevent the collection arm from reaching the cart during collection and can cause property damage. Objects such as vehicles completely block the cart during the collection process. Republic Services is not responsible for moving the carts from blocked areas.

Please do not overfill your poly cart, the lids should close completely. Overfilled poly carts can cause spillage during the collection process and litter your property and neighborhood streets.  Overfilled poly carts will not be serviced. Please do not put garbage bags on top of the cart. Your cart should be loose enough to come out when tipped during servicing. Tightly compacted bags or trash inside the cart may not come out when serviced. If you decide you would like an additional poly cart, please contact Customer Service at 281-342-5456. (There is an additional fee for this.) Republic Services is not responsible for garbage that spills during the collection process.
