Modified Waste Services and Programs

State and county governments have given us health orders to stay home to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus and save lives, and we love how Rancho Cordovans are stepping up and taking this responsibility seriously. In alignment with this effort, Republic Services, Inc. is modifying its services as of March 27, 2020 to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus while maintaining essential services.

  • Additional trash pickups: While you are at home, doing your part to help #FlattenTheCurve, your family may generate more waste than usual. If you need an additional pickup of your trash bin, please contact Republic Services on your regular collection day at 916.638.9000. Also, please remember that properly placing materials in your recycle and yard waste bins will help save space in your trash bin. Additional trash bin pickups will be provided at no charge.
  • Bulky item pickup program: Appointments for bulky item pickups are temporarily suspended, and residents who have appointments scheduled after March 27 will be contacted by Republic Services. Please safely store these items until this program is reinstated.
  • Curbside collection of batteries, oil and sharps: Collection of these materials is also temporarily suspended in an effort to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus. However, residents can deliver these materials and others to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection facility at Kiefer Landfill located at 12701 Kiefer Boulevard, Soughhouse, CA 95683. Click here to learn more about this facility and what types of HHW they accept.

*Monthly rates include a 93 cent monthly charge for the provision of street sweeping services and are based upon the size of the garbage cart and include all programs and services, including curbside recycling and green waste collection, the bulky item program, used oil and filter collection, etc. Republic Services bills customers on a bimonthly basis (every other month), so the actual bill will be double the amount shown above.

Cart Placement

Place carts on the street by 6 a.m. on your collection day. Carts are not allowed to be left curbside longer than 12 hours. The City of Rancho Cordova requires carts be placed in backyards, in a garage, behind a fence or gate, or placed in a location that is not visible from the street. 

Please place carts side-by-side in the street three (3) feet apart and with the wheels three (3) feet from the curb. Keep all carts three (3) feet apart from anything that may block the collection truck.


If you are moving, please leave your garbage, recycling and green waste carts in a secure location for the next resident. To discontinue service, please call Republic Services Residential Customer Service at (916) 638-9000.
