How can I get rid of a refrigerator or freezer?

Please email or call us at 650-756-1130 to schedule a pick-up.

Where do I put my containers and when?

Please have your containers at the curb by 4:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day.

Why wasn't my garbage picked up?

For those rare times that Republic Services does not pick up a customer's garbage, the primary reasons are:

  • It was not left at the curb by 4 a.m., or our driver did not have access to your cans;
  • The cans were too heavy; many times loaded with rock, dirt or concrete (Containers must not exceed 60 lbs in weight). We usually send the driver back the same or next day after we receive your call.
  • Container contains unacceptable materials (i.e. hazardous materials, e-waste, etc.)
  • Extra collection was not scheduled. Please contact 650-756-1130 to learn about fees and scheduling extra collection.
