How does my recycling collection work?

Roll your container to the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. The container is emptied mechanically from inside a Republic Services® vehicle cab. The driver uses a joystick, much like those used in video games, to operate the automated arm that picks up the container and empties the garbage into the truck. The container is set back in place, and the Republic Services truck moves on to the next stop.
