Holiday Trash Schedule
As the holidays approach, there will be a slight change to your trash, green waste, and recycling pick-up schedule. Republic Services will also be offering free holiday tree recycling. The pick-up schedule changes for the holidays are as follows:
- Week of Christmas (Wednesday 12/25 through Saturday 12/28): There will be no collection on Christmas Day. All trash and green waste collection will be delayed by one day this week. Regular Wednesday collection will be completed on Thursday, Thursday on Friday, and Friday on Saturday.
- Week of New Year's Day (Wednesday 1/1 through Saturday 1/4): There will be no collection on New Year's Day. All trash and recycling collection will be delayed by one day this week. Regular Wednesday collection will be completed on Thursday, Thursday on Friday, and Friday on Saturday.
Free Holiday Tree Recycling: From December 26 through January 17, Rancho Cordova residents may recycle live-cut holiday trees at no additional cost! We encourage residents to cut their tree into pieces and place in the green waste cart for collection on your regular collection day. Residents may also place trees on the curb for collection on their regular trash day. Please no artificial or flocked trees, and remove all ornaments, lights and stands prior to collection.
