Solid Waste transition to refuse roll carts

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Rehrig Pacific is finishing up delivery of roll carts to the residential customers on Thursday and Friday curbside collection routes.

Even though carts are being delivered now, the Solid Waste Utility would like to remind customers that automated collection of the new roll carts will not begin until Monday, March 4. Residents must continue placing trash bags at the curb for collection until the new service starts. Roll carts placed at the curb before then will not be emptied.

The Utility’s goal is to provide the best possible service to our customers. A proven method of solid waste collection, automated collection allows us to increase the efficiency of collection while improving safety for our workers.

Also, the use of refuse carts encourages waste reduction through recycling and backyard composting.

Between collection days, customers must store their roll carts adjacent to the residential structure or an accessory structure (i.e., detached garage or storage shed).

Carts shall be placed at the curb no earlier than 4 p.m. the day before the customer’s scheduled collection day and no later than 6:30 a.m. on the collection day. Carts must be removed from the curb no later than 10 p.m. on the customer’s collection day.

There is no charge for the cart itself. However, customers’ monthly rates are determined based on the size of the cart. For example, a customer who uses a 65-gallon cart will be charged $17.37, meaning there will be no change to the bill. Charges for smaller or larger carts are proportionate to the size of the cart.

  • 35 gallon - $12.87 per month
  • 65 gallon - $17.37 per month (the current fee)
  • 95 gallon - $22.50 per month

Customers may request to exchange their refuse cart one time at no charge within the first 120 days of initially receiving the cart. After the initial 120-day period, customers will be charged a $25 exchange fee per cart.

Additional carts and one-time extra collections will be available for additional fees.

The Solid Waste Utility received its first side-loader truck for automated residential collection on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
