Trash and recycling

New trash and recycling company

Republic Services Trash TruckThe City of Santa Ana will be changing trash companies, from Waste Management to Republic Services, on July 1, 2022. The new contract will include new services that will maximize recycling by residents and businesses, helping the City meet goals established in recent State recycling laws.

A key component of the new contract is the “Santa Ana Clean City Initiatives” services that will maintain clean public spaces citywide. Among the programs, Republic Services will provide abandoned item collection and litter cleanup, 250 public trash containers serviced citywide, sidewalk cleaning and power washing, and cleaning services for illegal dumping hotspot areas.

Additional contract enhancements include new trucks, carts, and bins; organics (yard and food waste) recycling; annual household hazardous waste drop-off, compost giveaway, and shredding events; increased bulky item pickups; neighborhood association container collection; and community donations.

New carts coming soon

Republic Services CartsMake your changes now! A new trash company means new trash and recycling carts.

Republic Services, in partnership with the City, is mailing a notification to all residential customers with curbside cart service identifying the number and size of carts on record. If this information is incorrect or if you would like to make changes, submit your request by the date on your notification. Cart change requests can be made online at RepublicServices.com/SantaAnaCA, by scanning the QR code or by calling Republic Services at 877-328-2074.

All residential customers with curbside residential cart service will automatically receive one trash cart, one recycle cart, and one organics (yard and food waste) cart for a new monthly rate of $22.94, effective July 1, 2022. Rates do not vary based on cart size. Additional carts will now incur new charges — each additional trash cart is $5.85 per month, and each additional recycle or organics (yard and food waste) cart is $2.00 per month. Along with your new cart delivery, you will receive information on the new residential collection and added programs. Click here for Residential Program Services Guide.
