Buyer beware! As long as you are a customer with no needs other than garbage pickup, Republic is OK. We have been customers for decades (the company has changed names a few times). When we moved out of the service area though...BOOM..."that'll be $25.00 per container to pick up". What??! They're their containers! Why should we have to pay them to pick up their own containers? Seriously - go with another provider. Never heard of this ridiculous hidden charge.

We discontinued our service, and they have billed us $25 each for picking up their garbage can and recycle can. I have not found another trash pickup service in the area that charges for this. In addition, we were never told we would be charged for this until we called to discontinue our service. Their service was reliable (although expensive), but this charge is a scam, and we will never use them again.
Tips & Advices
The cost of trash pickup often depends on the size of the garbage container and whether the service is being handled by the city or a private company. The monthly rate for weekly pickup of a 48- gallon garbage container can run around $20 if this service is handled by a local municipality, while pickup for a 96-gallon cart can cost roughly $22. Rates are often higher when working with a private company.
A compost cart is used for the pickup of compostable items. The list of compostable items includes yard debris, such as branches and plant trimmings; a wide variety of food products, including everything from baked goods to poultry to fruits, grains, and sauces; non-recyclable paper products such as used paper plates and cups; and miscellaneous items, such as cotton balls, hair, and wooden toothpicks.
Trash should always be placed in a trash container when possible. However, if you have more trash than you're able to fit into your trash container, some trash pickup companies will accept the trash if it is bagged and placed next to the full container. Many trash pickup companies will accept up to five extra bags at no charge.
The most common residential trash container size is 96 gallons. A 96-gallon container is large enough to meet the needs of the average family, and it's generally able to handle weekly collection cycles without overflow. This is the largest residential trash container that a garbage truck's automated side loader can accommodate.
Paint cans should not be placed in regular trash bins. Paint and paint thinners can be hazardous to the environment, and these items require special handling when it comes to disposal. If you have paint cans that need to be disposed off, call your trash pickup company to make special arrangement to have them removed.
