Service Rates

Residents have a choice of a 32-gallon, 64 gallon or 96-gallon garbage cart. Your fees are determined by the size of your garbage cart only. The standard organic waste and recycling carts are 96 gallons, but a resident may request smaller carts. This will not change the fees charged by Republic Services.

Garbage Collection Service is Mandatory

The City of Citrus Heights has an ordinance that states garbage collection service is mandatory for all homes and buildings. This ordinance is typical in most cities and counties throughout the country. Mandatory garbage collection preserves public health and safety and enhances the community.


Property owners can apply for a temporary exemption of garbage and recycling service due to an extended absence from the residence. 

The application form and instructions can be found here: Temporary Exemption Form

Garbage service exemptions are NOT to be used for properties on the market for sale, or for rental properties.
