Collection Schedule

Collection Day: To find out the collection day for your address, contact Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal at (530) 583-7800.

Holidays: On holidays, the collection schedule is the same; there will be a collection on Christmas Day, but at an earlier time. On a working holiday, remember to place the garbage outside by 6:00am. Note: Administrative offices are closed during most holidays.

Severe Weather: Garbage collection routes will be completed at the earliest opportunity. If the town and county roads to your neighborhood location are impassable, our crews will generally attempt to gain access again later in the day. However, sometimes they must return on a later date.

Please help our collection crews do their job by:

  • Maintaining clear access to your garbage containers, including all snow and ice
  • Making cans visible to collection driver, but not blocking the snowplow.
  • Placing cans behind snow poles when setting them out.
  • Securely fastening lids (no screw lids) to prevent animal intrusion or water absorption.

Green Waste & Recycling: Green and blue carts are serviced every-other-week on opposite weeks. Green waste carts are serviced May – November, and recycling carts are serviced year-round. A service schedule is below. Find more information on the green waste cart service and the recycling cart service. Need a reminder about whether it’s green or blue cart week?
