Apts/Condos: Black Landfill Bin or Cart

Your Republic Services monthly service rate is a bundled service based on the size of your black or gray landfill bin/cart, and collection frequency. Recycling and organics service is bundled with your landfill service at no additional cost. The more your residents recycle and compost properly – the less you pay! 

Extra Material? 

Property owners and managers can call Republic Services to schedule extra collection services for a fee at (925) 685-4711. Extra material, including cardboard boxes, can also be taken to the Concord Recycling Center. The facility takes many materials for free!
