Important COVID-19 Update for Our Customers

Republic Services, formerly High Country Disposal, continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation to make sure we’re doing the right thing for the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve. Our number one priority is safety, and that is at the forefront of every decision we make.

Collection Service

There is no interruption in your collection service at this time. Republic Services is continuing to collect waste and recycling material from households and businesses. Please put your carts out on your collection day by 6:00 a.m., (7:00 a.m. within the city of Sisters), or the night before.

Changes You Need to Know

While we are working hard to ensure the highest quality customer service and minimal service disruption, the unique challenges we face requires us to temporarily modify some of our service offerings to keep our community clean and safe.

Please note the changes below:

  • We are temporarily suspending our bulk item pickup service, i.e. couches, mattresses, appliances, etc. We hope you can store these items until we are able to resume service.
  • Our extra bags service remains the same, except, any extra material placed outside of the roll cart(s) must be bagged. To limit the exposure to our drivers, they will not remove any loose material outside of the cart that is not bagged.
  • Please note for any extra recycling, the material must be in a paper bag, no plastic bags allowed. If possible, please breakdown cardboard to place inside the recycling cart.
  • Spring Clean-up events have been postponed to avoid direct interaction between employees and the public, and new dates will be posted as soon as this situation starts to turn.

How to Reach Us

  • The Redmond office located at 1090 NE Hemlock Avenue is temporarily closed for walk-in service. Our phone lines are open Monday – Friday 8:00 – 4:30 p.m. Please call us for any service questions or to make a payment at (541) 548-4984. There is also a payment drop box located outside the building for payments.
  • For document destruction services, contact our Bend office at 541-382-2263 to schedule the truck to come to your home or office and safely shred your confidential documents.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your help as we implement these additional safety measures. We will update our site when these changes have been lifted. Our team remains committed to you throughout this crisis. We appreciate your business and wish you all the best during this difficult time.
