Cart Placement

You can avoid missed pick-ups by properly placing your carts at the curb the night before collection or by 6:00 a.m. on the day of service.

All rolling carts must be placed at the curb or road edge, three (3) feet apart, with the lids positioned to open toward the street. Please keep carts away from all obstacles such as cars and mailboxes, and overhead obstacles such as telephone wires. We recommend setting your carts out the night before your collection day to avoid missing early morning pick-ups.

Please make sure the lids close completely and only the appropriate materials are in each cart. Over-filled or contaminated carts may not be picked up and/or may result in extra charges.

Commercial and Multi-Family Services

Collection service for commercial and multi-family residential customers includes trash collection and recycling. Please make sure not to overfill bin as over-filled bins may spill when emptied into the truck. All material must fit inside the bin and the lid must close completely or an excess material fee may be charged.

Mandatory Recycling for Businesses and Apartments

State recycling regulations require that all businesses generating at least four (4) cubic yards of garbage per week and all multi-family complexes with at least 5 units MUST recycle. This new requirement became effective July 1, 2012.

CalRecycle estimates that 75% percent of landfill waste is generated by the commercial sector, including businesses, schools and apartment complexes. Promoting commercial recycling helps keep recyclable materials out of landfills. This conserves resources, extends the life of landfills and reduces the potential generation of greenhouse gases.

For more information about how these new regulations may apply to you and to learn more about local recycling opportunities call us at (530) 252-1200. To learn more about commercial recycling, click here.

Free Waste Assessments

Waste assessments are provided at no charge to commercial and multi-family residential subscribers. We will visit your site to assess your waste stream and determine whether more material can be recycled, which could result in a reduction in your trash bill. Call (530) 252-1200 to make arrangements for a free waste assessment.

Bulk Waste Services

Bulk waste collection service is available to commercial and multi-family customers for an additional fee. Please call our office at (530) 252-1200 for more information.

Hazardous Waste

Hazardous and electronic waste is strictly prohibited in all garbage carts, recycle carts, greenwaste carts and debris boxes. This includes all paints, thinners, pesticides, motor oil, fluorescent tubes and electronics such as televisions, monitors, and VCRs.

You may take the following residential items to Bass Hill Landfill:

  • Electronics (TVs, computers, VCRs, stereo equipment, cell phones, etc.)
  • Household and automotive batteries
  • Fluorescent Tubes
