Curbside Green Waste Collection

Residents of the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County are provided green waste collection service every other week.



Whether residents have an old style green container with a "GREEN WASTE" sticker on it or a new permanently-labeled green one, they have a choice of a 30, 60 and 90-gallon green waste container. Residents can receive one additional green waste container for no additional charge. Additional green waste containers (more than two) per residence can be obtained for a fee of $2 per container per month. 

There is no charge for repairing or replacing damaged containers.

Never Miss Another Waste Collection Day!

ReCollect offers a variety of services. You can simply use the address search function to find out your weekly collection schedule or you can sign up for weekly reminders via email or phone. Your information is protected and used only for the purposes of providing waste collection service information.

Service Instructions:

  • Green waste and mixed recyclables are collected on an alternating week basis. Green waste is collected one week and mixed recyclables the next
  • Containers must be placed at the curbside no later than 6 a.m., on the scheduled collection day, holidays included
  • Containers must be placed on the street (as shown below) so as to not block pedestrian use
  • Containers must be placed a minimum of six feet away from cars and other stationary objects to avoid risk of property damage
  • Containers must be removed from the curbside once they have been serviced and stored on the side or back of property
  • If a container is full prior to the regular collection day, contact Customer Service and request an unscheduled service for an additional charge

Materials must fall freely from the container when dumped, so do not compact materials in the container. Containers may not be serviced if they are overfilled, are not accessible, or include unacceptable materials. Exemption from this service requirement can be allowed if certain requirements are met.
