Hernando Rolls Out New Garbage Carts
Customers of Republic Services will receive the new carts, which will be used when automated garbage service begins in February. Delivery of the new carts begins today.
HERNANDO COUNTY -Hernando County has a contractual agreement with Republic Services to collect residential garbage for all unincorporated areas of the county, excluding the city of Brooksville.
In February, Republic Services will begin providing automated garbage service. As part of the automated service, every customer will receive one new garbage cart. The carts are designed to fit specialty side-loader trucks that use an automated arm to lift and empty garbage from the cart.
