City of Sulphur’s Solid Waste Collection Services Reminders

 

In an effort to better serve the local community, Republic Services, Sulphur’s provider for waste collection services, has reminders for what can be disposed of in Sulphur residents’ curbside waste collection containers.

 

Republic is asking residents to follow these guidelines when it comes to their waste disposal:

 

  • Republic will collect the trash at each residence once a week, excluding bulky items, white goods, yard waste and construction/demolition debris. Please see more on these items in the bullets below.
  • The collection of qualified “white goods” that are allowed in the container must be certified as having any and all refrigerant properly and safely removed.
  • Yard waste, such as tree trimmings, yard clippings and plants, must be properly containerized or bagged, and meet the size and weight requirements in order to be included in the curbside container.
  • The collection of up to five (5) bundles of resident-generated construction and/or demolition debris per location per service date is allowed, but must be bundled or bagged securely.
  • Any excess bagged household trash placed outside the curbside container during the seven (7) days following these holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day will be collected. Please note that bagged excess could be subject to weight limits imposed for bundles.
  • If a resident receives one curbside container and if a second container is needed, please make this request through Sulphur Garbage Collection Services.

 

“Republic takes great pride in serving the City of Sulphur,” said Steve Sytsma, general manager with Republic Services. “Every day, we fulfill a promise to our customers to collect and manage their waste with precision and consistency.”

 

He added that the Company continually looks at ways to enhance its complex collection routes and safety protocols, and to ensure they are properly communicating any changes or updates with customers on a regular basis.

 

“We recognize that people have a choice when it comes to trash collection services. We are privileged to serve hundreds of homes and businesses throughout the local area, and we’re grateful for that,” Sytsma said.
