Trash & Recycling Tips

Has your trash or recycling pick-up been late? Is it your regular trash day and the cans are still full at the street? Before you report your items as missed, keep the following in mind:

  • Put your trash and recycling out by 7 AM.
  • Don't report a missed collection to Waste Management.
  • Always report services issues to 3-1-1. Reporting to 3-1-1 allows Public Works' Solid Waste Team to directly follow up with Waste Management to get your items off the ground.
  • If your trash was not picked up - don't take it back in! Leave your missed items at the curb or street edge until they're collected. Bringing your missed trash or recycling back into your garage or placing it on the side of your house can result in it being missed again.
  • Sometimes recovering your missed items can take a day or two. Put your trash and recycling in sealed containers to keep it from spilling out and blowing all over your neighborhood. If your items still haven't been recovered after a day or two, report it again!
  • Sometimes trash and recycling are missed because crews are working hard to pick up bulky items. Bulky item collection slows everything down, so avoid putting bulky items out whenever possible. The faster drivers can collect trash and recycling at your neighbor's house, the faster they can get to yours!
  • Please be patient. We know missed trash and recycling collection is frustrating, and Public Works' Solid Waste team is committed to working with Waste Management on ways to keep these misses from happening.
