Trash and green waste

***Please do not place bark in the green waste bin

About your service

Trash is collected weekly and green waste is collected every other week, Monday through Friday. The collection day depends on where you live in the City. Trash must be set out at the curb by 6 a.m. for pickup. Please place your green waste container in the street with your garbage container. Be sure to leave at least 4 to 6 feet between your garbage and green waste container as well as all the way around the can.

What goes in the green waste bin?

  • Prunings (less than 4" in diameter and cut to fit inside)
  •  Leaves
  • Grass clippings
  • Christmas trees (unflocked and cut to fit inside)

How do I get rid of an item?

We've created a Waste Wizard tool to help residential customers sort waste properly -- everything from where to take paint and proper medication and sharps disposal to electronics and other recyclables.  While we have single bin approach to trash and recycling, not everything can go into your one big bin.  Some require that you schedule a pick up for curb side pick up or drop-off materials at a local facility.

Food for soil: food waste recycling program

According to Senate Bill 1383, California needs to make sure that 75 percent of organic waste is diverted from landfills by 2025. To make this happen, Roseville will keep using the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) located at 3033 Fiddyment Rd in Roseville. As part of this plan, residents will still put their food scraps together with their trash and recycling for the MRF to sort them. Rest assured, we will let our residents know in advance if there are any adjustments to this program.
