Additionally, the City will work with Republic Services to see that commercial/multi-family/industrial customer credits will be provided.

The City of Fullerton has incurred a variety of costs in responding to the trash strike. As such, the City will seek reimbursement for these costs as appropriate from Republic Services.

Until such time as a full cycle of residential trash collection has been completed citywide, the City and Republic Services will provide two temporary trash disposal drop-off locations in the city:
  • Independence Park (801 W. Valencia Dr.)
  • Fullerton Sports Complex (560 E. Silver Pine St.)
These two locations will be open to the public for disposal from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for Fullerton residents and businesses needing to dispose of normal refuse. No bulky waste items or hazardous waste materials will be accepted at these locations.
