Your garbage and recycling company may delay or cancel your pick-up when conditions make collection unsafe.

Contact your garbage and recycling company or visit their website for the most up-to-date service information.

To find your garbage and recycling collection company , use the Garbage & Recycling Day tool and enter your address. Contact your service provider for up-to-date collection information in your area.

Check out the instructions on Managing Extra Materials during a service interruption event.

You can set out up to twice the volume of your regular garbage and yard debris service following a collection interruption for no extra charge. If prepared correctly and set next to your regular collection bins, there is never an additional charge for extra mixed recycling or glass recycling.

Since there is no additional charge for extra materials missed during the service interruption, no billing credit will be applied.

See your city’s web pages for charges, rules and regulations if you are not located in unincorporated Washington County.
