Residential Collection Services

  Service Costs 

By sorting your trash, green waste, and recycling at home you help the environment, ease the strain on landfills, reduce contamination, and return recyclables to commerce, usually as part of other products.

Please avoid contaminating recyclables and yard clippings by putting the right materials in the GREEN, GRAY, and BLUE carts.

The City of Fresno provides residents with three 96-gallon carts as a basic level of service. For your convenience, all carts are emptied on the same day by automated collection trucks. Carts can be placed out for collection after 6:00 p.m. the preceding day but not after 5:30 a.m. on the day of collection. Carts shall be placed out of view no later than 8:00 p.m. on your collection day.

We encourage you to take advantage of weekly curbside pickup and recycle as many things as possible. Please see the list of acceptable materials for each cart linked below. When you recycle, you save resources and help Fresno meet the State Mandate (AB 939) that requires all cities to significantly reduce the amount of trash sent to landfills.

To avoid contaminating recycling and yard clippings, please follow these lists:
GREEN         GRAY         BLUE
