CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Republic Services is making changes to garbage collection due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Republic is collecting cart contents only.

Any items outside of the trash cart will not be collected.

Bulk collection is temporarily suspended, to keep drivers in the cab of their trucks to reduce exposure.

The company also implemented staggered start times for drivers, to keep them from gathering in groups of over 10 people.
