Message from Republic Services 

Happy Spring!

  • Republic Services would like to remind you of the upcoming Yard Waste Collection Schedule.
  • We will start collections in the City of Wayne community beginning the week of April 3rd, 2023.
  • We ask that residents please ensure that your materials are placed out for collection either the night before or by 6 am (depending on local ordinances) to ensure that all items are collected.
  • Please help us to collect your yard waste safely and efficiently – we ask that all brush be no longer than 4 feet long, tied, and not heavier than 40 pounds.
    Working together for a safer, quicker service helps both of us out.
  • Inquiries from the public should be directed to our Customer Resource Center at: (800) 878-4626 or the Republic Services website at:
