ANAHEIM, Calif. (Dec. 16, 2021) — There is a tentative agreement to resume waste collection service in Anaheim, with Republic Services workers off the picket line this morning.
Today we will continue to see limited but expanding service for scheduled pickup areas and priority sites.
In coming days, we expect to see service start to normalize and get better each day into next week.
Please know your city has played a leading role in getting us to where we are by advocating for our residents and businesses.
Here’s what to know:
Thursday scheduled pickups
Put all of your bins at the curb and treat today like a holiday schedule. You could see limited service today, including pickup of just black household waste bins. If you don't see service, leave bins out for Friday, as if on a holiday schedule, for likely service that day.
Friday scheduled pickups
Put all of your bins out the night before or Friday morning. You may see limited service on Friday. If no service, leave them out for likely collection on Saturday.
Next week scheduled pickups
Put all of your bins and any extra bagged trash out as scheduled. We look to see full service resume and improvement each day. Note that drivers will be getting caught up and there still could be some uncollected waste or missed pickups here and there as we fully return to normal over several days.
Missed collections past week
Take up your bins up and await your next regularly scheduled collection day. Use trash bags as needed, consider double bagging and make sure to tie bags closed. Bags will be collected along with bin waste on your next scheduled day.
Apartment and townhome community residents should bag waste and place in community bins. If full, check with your property manager for guidance. Property managers can reach out to Republic at (714) 238-2444 about contingency service. Otherwise, look to see upcoming service as we return to normal.
Billing credits, street sweeping
Anaheim will be crediting waste collection bills for any missed pickups. Street sweeping is not impacted and continues as scheduled. There are no citations for bins or bags on the street.
