Refuse Rates

The City contracts with Tule Trash Company for refuse collection services. A seperate container for the disposal of greenwaste, recyclables, and garbage will be provided. Each household must be provided with and pay for refuse service. The monthly Refuse Service charge for a 64 gallon trashcan, a 96 gallon greenwaste can, and a 96 gallon recyclables can is $25.50. The charge for a 96 gallon trashcan, a 96 gallon greenwaste can, and a 96 gallon recyclables can is $31.60.

Containers must be placed out by 5:00 a.m. the day of collection. Refuse pick-up is made at each house once a week. Do not place cans out for collection if they are less than half full. All refuse must be placed within the container, and the container should not be placed within four feet of any obstruction as to cause interference for the Refuse trucks accessibility to the container. Do not overload or place bulky or heavy items into the containers such as pieces of concrete, large tree limbs, appliances or construction waste. The lid of the container must be closed in order for the refuse truck’s lift to work properly to empty the container. The emptied container must be removed from the street or alley the same day of pick-up.

No alley collections, beginning July 1, 2005.
