What if my garbage or recycling cart is damaged?

Damaged carts should be reported immediately to Republic Services online or at 954-583-1830. There is no charge for your first replacement. 

For any subsequent damaged carts where the damage is due to: 

  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Modification
  • Or any other damage not covered under the warranty

 you would be responsible for the cost of repair or replacement. However, if your cart is damaged during the collection process or has a manufacturer defect, your cart will be repaired or replaced free of charge.
