Please no liquid waste, hazardous materials, chemicals, dirt, rocks, or paint in the trash OR recycle carts!

If the carts are over-filled, contain illegal materials, or are impeded by a vehicle or other object, carts will not be emptied.

Missed trash or recycle (or extra empty)

The City can provide call-back service for trash and or recycle carts upon request. The charge for an additional empty is $17.14 per cart. This charge also applies for carts that were not out by 7:00 am, or if the driver was unable to empty the cart at the time pickup was originally attempted. Please call Solid Waste at (805) 986-6650 for call-back service.
