While many cities across the country use taxes to pay for trash collection services, Chapter 9.08 of the Las Vegas City Code, requires Las Vegas residents to pay individually for these services as they do water and electricity. Republic Services is responsible for all trash collection across the Las Vegas Valley. Currently the trash collection fee is about $13 per month.

Republic Service offers twice weekly trash pickup. To order new service call (702) 735-5151 or email them with a service request.
