Here’s what you need to know:

Residential Trash

  • Nothing new here: Mixed waste collection will remain in the same customer cans: one 32-gallon can collected weekly. 
  • No more “can averaging:” Each resident is allotted one can of trash per week rather than the previous “can averaging” program which allotted residents an average of 13 trash cans per quarter. 
  • Scheduled Overages: Up to 3 extra cans or bags of additional waste can be picked up on your normal service day, upon request 4 times per year. *Max 96-gallons total and 51 lbs each can or bag.* Must schedule ahead of time through your TTSD online customer portal under “MY ACCOUNT” at http://www.waste101.com/. First time users will need your customer account number and an invoice number, which can be found on a recent bill from TTSD or by calling TTSD customer service at (530) 583-7800
  • Bulky items can be collected curbside on an on-call basis up to two times/year for free. (Please note that multi-family residents in a complex with 5+ units receive one bulky item pick-up for free per year.) Each collection can include up to 3-cubic yards of recyclable material, electronic waste, universal waste, AND up to 1 bulky item (mattress, couch, etc.). *Individual items cannot exceed 200 lbs. See specific information for refrigerators here. Must call TTSD ahead of time to schedule at 530.583.7800.
