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.

For more information, contact Republic Services at 916.638.9000.

Looting Alert

The State of California is currently under the Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency due to the COVID-19 Virus. Whenever federal, state or local authorities declare a state of emergency, the criminal penalties for common shoplifting and theft are greatly enhanced under California’s looting law.

California Penal Code section 463 makes violations of this law punishable criminally by incarceration in county jail prison for up to three years and a fine of up to $10,000, with a mandatory minimum sentence of six months in county jail. If the stolen item is a firearm, the sentence shall be served in state prison. The statute applies to any person entering any building or structure with the intent to steal any property, no matter its value. 

Price Gouging and Deceptive Advertising

The State of California is currently under the Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency due to the COVID-19 Virus.  Whenever federal, state or local authorities declare a state of emergency, it is unlawful to raise prices for essential consumer goods and services by more than 10% of the existing prices immediately prior to the declaration of emergency.  Complaints regarding price gouging can be filed with the District Attorney’s Office Consumer Protection Division here.

In addition, be mindful of any products or services that falsely claim to treat, diagnose, prevent, or cure COVID-19. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, nor is there a medicine that treats or cures coronavirus. Individuals who have been the victim of a falsely advertised product that claims to treatment, test, or cure coronavirus are encouraged to file a complaint through the California Attorney General’s website here.

Response to Found Animals

Due to the stay-at-home Sacramento County Public Health Order issued on March 19, 2020, the Sacramento SPCA is ceasing all public-facing services. Under normal circumstances, the Sacramento SPCA takes in found and stray animals in Rancho Cordova; however, due to the County’s Public Health Order, these processes have changed.

Prevent Costly Sewer Problems

The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic has resulted in limited availability of some paper products such as toilet paper. As a result, wipes, rags and paper towels are being flushed into the sewer system. The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD), the region’s sewage collection utility, is reminding everyone to flush only toilet paper and human waste—nothing else. Products other than toilet paper, including “flushable wipes” put sewer pipes at risk of becoming clogged. If you have questions or need immediate assistance, contact SASD at 916.875.6730.
