Solid Waste


Services provided by the City’s Solid Waste Division include commercial frontload, residential, and community recycling services.

The City recycles collected material through the delivery of refuse to the Western Placer Waste Management Authority's (WPWMA) Material Recovery Facility (MRF) where it is sorted and recyclable materials are separated. The MRF is located at 3033 Fiddyment Road (main entrance is on Athens Road). Click the link under "Downloads"  for directions.

Each home is provided with one can for garbage and recycling, and another for greenwaste material. An exception to the greenwaste program is made for "cluster homes"; they do not have adequate space for both collections services. The greenwaste can is serviced bi-weekly. For more information, see the "Guide to Services" link under the "Downloads" section.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, routes may vary from week to week. To ensure timely pick-ups, please have your can(s) at curbside no later than 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.

Missed pick-ups will be accepted up to 48 hours after the service day. The fee is $15 per container-full.

Please note: HOLIDAYS which fall on a weekday are serviced as scheduled.
