New Trash Provider: Republic Services

Effective January 1, 2016 Republic Services will be your new Trash and Recycling provider. Your collection day will remain the same as when the City of Dayton collected. Service will start on January 2 for those customers that have Friday collection.  Service for the first year will be $12.64 per month.  Your first invoice will be mailed out the week of December 14th, 2015 for the first quarter of 2016.   Thereafter, property owners will receive quarterly invoices.  The invoicing process will be new for 2016 as Riverside customers were previously billed via a property tax assessment.  To prevent a discontinuation of service, please pay close attention to your invoices from Republic Services.
