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.
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.
