COVID-19 Redmond Office Hours Update

Due to COVID-19 precautions, Republic Services, formerly High Country Disposal, has temporarily suspended walk-in service at 1090 NE Hemlock Avenue in Redmond. Our phone lines remain open Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm at (541) 548-4984.

For shred and compost sales from the Redmond office, please call us at (541) 548-4984 prior to coming out so we can coordinate bringing those items to you with minimal contact.

For faster shred service, take advantage of our convenient onsite document destruction services. Call (541) 382-2263 to schedule the truck to come to your home or office and safely shred your confidential documents.
