Garbage and Recycling

Creating an Account

To sign up for trash services, create an account with Republic Services

If you own a residential property - defined as owner occupied or rental single family dwellings, duplex, triplex, or boarding houses in Kent - you must sign up for the new service. The service does not include commercial, industrial, or large residential properties like apartment complexes.

Trash will be collected Monday through Thursday, except in holiday weeks where each collection day will be one day later than normal and Friday will be used to make up for the holiday.

There are six major holidays that will impact your service:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

The yearly schedules are printed on the back of each bill.

The City has been divided into 4 quadrants corresponding to the 4 collection days. Your trash should be set out for collection the night before your collection day and all cans should be returned to your home the evening after they were emptied. Collections will be made between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. on your designated collection day.

Use the City Trash Route Map (JPG) to find your trash collection day.

For Buy the Bag service, residents may purchase the specially designated bags at the Kent Finance Office located at 930 Overholt Road, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bags are sold in lots of 10 at a price of $3.15 per bag.

You must confirm this level of service with Republic Services.

Republic Services will handle all trash and recycling service collection and billing questions, so if you need customer assistance call 800-247-3644. Trash billing will be performed on a quarterly basis, and you will be billed for the next 3 months prior to the start of each quarter. All payments for trash services should be directed to Republic Services.
