City of Rosemead

In April 2020, Republic Services announced its $20 million initiative "Committed to Serve" as a way to honor its frontline employees and support our local small business customers to help keep our communities thriving. Learn more...

Proudly Serviced by Republic Services, Inc.

Republic Services provides exclusive recycling and waste collection services for residential and commercial accounts for the City of Rosemead. We offer one-stop shopping for all of the city's waste removal needs. Although we specialize in recycling and solid waste collection, our services go far beyond just emptying the trash bins.

Recycle Rewards Program

Rosemead residential cart customers can now sign up to be rewarded for recycling. Contact customer service for sign up information.

All you have to do is sign up and recycle. Each quarter we will compare our 10 recycle zones and award the zone with the most recycling collected. If your address is in that zone, you will be awarded a $10.00 gift card to be used at a local Rosemead business.

We will be awarding these gift certificates to the winning zone 4 times a year.
