Neighborhood Cleanup

Republic Services provides Citrus Heights residents with Neighborhood Cleanup service 3 times per year. This service helps with the disposal of bulky trash like old furniture, household appliances, electrical items, and tree branches. 

Collection Schedule

Want to know when your bulky trash pick-up day is? The map below shows the collection schedule. Republic Services notifies residents of their exact pick-up date with a door hanger one week before pick-up day. Residents can also call Republic Services at 916-725-9060 for more information. Please remember to set out material for collection no more than 2 days before your scheduled pick-up day. This will help minimize illegal dumping and unwanted scavenging.
