Residential Waste Collection 

Service Carts

Republic Services provides Citrus Heights residents with three carts; one garbage, one recycling and one organic waste. 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 gallon, but a resident may request smaller carts. This will not change the fees charged by Republic Services.

Residential Garbage Collection is Mandatory

The City of Citrus Heights has an ordinance that requires all homes and buildings to have garbage and recycling collection services. There are rare exceptions:
  • House fire
  • Building has become uninhabitable
  • Extended vacancy 

Collection service exemptions are NOT to be used for properties that are for sale or for empty rental properties.

For more information about applying for a temporary exemption of garbage and recycling services, go to the "Residential Recycling and Garbage Collection" link to the left or contact the General Services Department at 916-727-4770 or by email
