Garbage & Recycling


March 27 Update: Dumpster at Road Closure
Republic Services returned a large dumpster to the closure area in addition to the regular pick-up service detailed below. The dumpster will be available for the next two weeks for your convenience. If you are a resident who currently does not have service with Republic, you will want to make arrangements with the company for trash and recycling pick up. You can find their contact information here: https://www.republicservices.com or call directly at (925) 685-4711.

Trash & Recycling Collection
Republic Services is collecting bagged garbage and recyclables placed out in special blue bags they provide weekly from customers with active accounts. Residents who do not have curbside collection service with Republic Services (non-customers) are able to use the dumpster detailed above for the next two weeks or should see the next section with links.

  • Bagged trash should be placed out for pick-up Thursday mornings no later than 6:00 a.m.
  • Recyclables will also be picked up at the same time if placed out in special blue recycling bags provided by Republic Services (distributed at the March 11th community meeting).
  • Bags will be collected from the same location as your garbage carts are normally serviced.
  • Pickup trucks will be used to collect trash and recyclables, so no large items should be set out.
  • Stay tuned for service updates, including future green waste collection.
Call Republic Services Customer Service at (925) 685-4711 with any questions about trash or recycling collection.
