Establish / Terminate Trash Service


If you do not receive residential waste or recycling service on your normally scheduled service day, please leave your carts at curbside through the next day.  When Republic experiences service delays, the standard operating procedure is for them to service those addresses the following day.

If service is not provided that next day, please notify the City by clicking on the “Report Trash Related Issues” link below.  When you send the resulting online form, it goes directly to a member of the City of Alpharetta staff as well as to Republic Services, and you will help us to more quickly resolve problems, track issues, and hold our vendor accountable.
If you do not receive a response within 24 hours of submitting the form, please contact the City at 678-297-6060 (option 0).
The City of Alpharetta in collaboration with Republic Services will notify residents of upcoming and/ or ongoing Sanitation service delays/ interruptions though text messages. If you have not previously provided your cellphone number and wish to receive notification, please complete this form.
