Sentinel staff report–
Beginning Feb. 19, your weekly waste collection day may be changing if you live in Citrus Heights. New changes set to go into effect next week will permanently affect trash, green waste, and recycling pick up days in the city.
In an email sent out to Citrus Heights neighborhood associations on Tuesday, Republic Services, which handles waste collection services in Citrus Heights, said the change is due to a citywide re-route in order to make collection routes “more efficient and to reduce noise, traffic, truck emissions, and costs.” The email also included a map of Citrus Heights showing the revised collection days for each area of the city.

Republic Services spokeswoman Johnnise Downs told The Sentinel on Tuesday afternoon she didn’t have a specific figure for how many residents will be affected by the change, but she advised customers to check the new map to see whether their area’s collection day will change. Customers who will have their service day change will also reportedly get a tag on their waste bins.
Downs said customers with questions about the new route changes are invited to call Republic Services at (916) 725-9060 or (916) 638-9000.
