Trash collection will discontinue for delinquent accounts in Hernando County


Trash collection to discontinue for overdue accounts

Starting Tuesday, Republic Services will discontinue trash collection on delinquent accounts. The company will place stickers on the refuse containers at the curb of residents whose accounts are currently past due. The stickers will include Republic's phone number to allow residents to pay their bills over the phone. Those who have never received a bill and would like to continue service may also call and set up billing. Since Jan. 2, Republic has been the sole provider of trash collection in Hernando County. Any residents who have paid a service fee to a different company should contact that company for a refund. For information, contact Republic Services at 1-800-282-9820 or 1-877-692-9729.
