Missed Trash Pickup

Missed Pickup - Trash, Recycling, Yard

If your trash, recycling, or yard waste was not emptied on your scheduled collection day, please contact Rainbow Environmental/Republic Services within 24 hours (including Saturday morning) at (714) 847-3581 to request a make-up collection. Missed pickups are typically collected the next business day, depending on time of day that Rainbow was notified. Please leave the cart out so that it can be emptied.

Please remember to place carts for collection before 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Each of the three collection trucks can come any time between 7 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Sometimes missed pickups occur because the resident accidentally put away a cart that had not yet been serviced, so if putting carts away prior to 6:30 p.m., please check the contents to be sure the cart was emptied.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are experiencing long hold times in excess of 15 minutes or other difficulty reaching Republic Services, please email [email protected]. When emailing please include your name, the affected service address and a call back phone number.
