Proper cart placement for automated service:

   - Place the cart at least five (5) feet from any object; like a tree, pole, fire hydrant, mailbox, electrical box, cable box, etc. and at least five(5) feet away from cars so the automated arm can reach your cart.

   - Please have this same distance of five (5) between trash and recycle carts.

   - Don’t lean anything against the cart.

   - Don’t place your cart under a tree or near utility lines.

   - Place carts one (1) foot from the curb or edge of the street.

   - All trash must be bagged and contained inside your Republic Service cart, with the lid closed.

   - Bags/trash lying outside of the cart or personal cans/containers will not be picked up.

Bulk Pickup Service - New Individually Scheduled Pickup for 2017


The City of Collinsville’s contracted waste hauler, Republic Services, is announcing an important change in 2017 for the Bulk Trash pickups in our City.

Instead of spring and fall “all trash days” you will now have the flexibility to set up your own, individually scheduled bulk pickup two times a calendar year – at no cost – beginning March 1st.

Each of the two bulk pickups must be scheduled through Republic Services customer service representatives prior to setting items out curbside by calling 618-656-6883.

Please do not contact the City of Collinsville to coordinate the individually scheduled bulk pickups.

When calling Republic Services, please be prepared to provide a description of the items that will be set out, the Customer service representative will then give you the exact date to set items out curbside.  The date given to the household will be within seven days from the call-in.

After households use their two (2) individually scheduled bulk pickups, there is a cost for bulk pickup and appliance pickup. Bulk item pickups will be a minimum of $50 and appliances will be a minimum of $30 per appliance.

Both bulk item and appliance pickups must be prepaid and scheduled through Republic Services customer service representatives by calling 618-656-6883.
