Sentinel staff report–
Notice your trash or recycling wasn’t picked up on the usual day this week?

Due to trash and recycling pickup being cancelled on both Christmas and New Year’s Day, Republic Services is advising residents that all waste collection containers will be picked up one day later for the next two weeks, from Dec. 25 through Jan. 7, 2019.

That means residents who normally have collection day on Tuesday will have their pickup on Wednesday, and those with a regular collection day of Wednesday will have their garbage and recycling picked up Thursday, and so on.

Republic Services, which handles waste collection for the City of Citrus Heights, is also recycling live Christmas trees from Dec. 26 through Jan. 11, 2019. Live trees — excluding flocked or decorated trees — can be placed at the curbside next to trash collection bins for free pickup. Live trees can also be cut into pieces and placed in green bins anytime.
