Trash Collection / Recycling
In March, 2016 Hudson City Council approved the creation of a preferred trash hauler program that will offer lower, established rates for our residents. The program also addressed the concern of having trash out on curbs all week long. Based on a bidding process, Republic Services was selected as the City's Preferred Hauler. As part of this program, all trash haulers will be required to pick up trash on the same day, based on City quadrants.
This new program will go into effect May 1, 2016.

What is a Preferred Hauler Program?
With a Preferred Hauler Program, the selected Preferred Hauler will offer lower rates than other haulers and provide quality services as determined by the City. If you do not wish to use Republic Services, which is the selected Preferred Hauler, you may select any of the other haulers that have been permitted to work in the City.
Why Should I Use the Preferred Hauler?
Before the Preferred Hauler program, the average estimated quarterly charge for trash services in Hudson was $75. With the Preferred Hauler Program, standard trash services will be $49.86 per quarter. Standard services include pickup of all trash, yard waste and bulk items, including single-stream recycling. As part of this program, all participants will receive a 96-gallon trash cart, along with a 65-gallon recycling cart. The recycling cart is larger and more easy to maneuver to the curb than the small recycling bins.
What If I Want to Keep My Current Hauler?
No problem. You do not need to switch to the Preferred Hauler. However, because the City has set specific pickup days for each City quadrant, the day of the week your trash is picked up may change. See the map below for the new pickup days.
Does My Homeowners Association Have to Use the Preferred Hauler?
No. Your homeowners association can keep its current supplier. However, with the new pickup days determined by City quadrants, your trash pickup day of the week may change.
Is Recycling Included in the Preferred Hauler Service?
When you sign up for with the Preferred Hauler, you will receive a 65-gallon recycling cart (much larger than the current bins). It's single-stream recycling, which means you can put all your recyclables into one cart. No need to sort by type of materials. And, you can put paper and cardboard into the cart, so you don't need to haul those items off to a recycling location.
Preferred Hauler Program Republic Services customer, residents can place 1 bulk item at the curb each week, including sofas, chairs, mattresses and box springs. For details about disposing of bulk items, see the Republic Services Brochure. What Constitutes a Bulk Item?
How Will My Trash Pickup Date Change?
Regardless of whether or not you choose Republic Services, our Preferred Hauler, your weekly trash pickup day will be determined by the City quadrant in which you live. Here is the new trash pickup schedule:
Southeast Quadrant: Monday
Southwest Quadrant: Tuesday
Northwest Quadrant: Wednesday
Northeast Quadrant: Thursday
If you live on SR 91 or SR 303, your trash will be collected based on the side of the street you are on. For example, if you live on the east side of SR 91, north of SR 303, your trash will be collected on Thursday as part of the Northeast Quadrant.
