Stormwater and Debris
Be sure to keep an eye on areas of your property that are prone to flooding, and make sure storm drains are cleared of debris to make way for additional water flow. Please secure outdoor belongings that could be shifted by strong winds including your trash and recycling containers. Republic Services will make every effort to place your containers back close to your property but strong winds may push these containers back off your property.
