Here’s what you need to know:

Residential Trash

  • Nothing new here: Mixed waste collection will remain in the same customer cans.
  • 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 (96-gallons) additional waste picked up on your normal service day, upon request 4 times per year 
  • Bulky items can be collected curbside on an on-call basis up to two times/year for free. 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.). Must call TTSD ahead of time to schedule (530.583.7800)
