Trash & Recycling Rates for Fiscal Year 2020

Small Residential Rates

This includes single-family homes and multi-family residences of 1-4 units.

Small residential trash comes in packages of 32, 64, 96, or 128 gallons for a monthly rate that includes unlimited recycling and up to 192 gallons of greenwaste (two of the largest carts) at no extra cost.

Large Residential

Multi-family residences include apartments and condominiums of 5 or more units. A single person -- usually the landlord or property manager -- receives and pays the trash bill. Rates and billing structure are different for these types of buildings.  If your containers are shared with another household, visit our Large Residential Service page.

Container Sizes Available

  • For curbside service, choose carts (35, 65, or 95 gallon sizes), which must be rolled to the curb no more than 24 hours prior to collection and removed within 12 hours after pickup.

  • Backyard service uses cans (32 gallons only), which will be picked up and returned from their location in the backyard or driveway.

  • All single-family homes will receive collection once per week; multi-family complexes and buildings may choose more frequent service.
