Green debris carts may be used for lawn clippings, plant trimmings, leaves, and other plant materials (if it grows, it goes). Eligible customers include those within the city limits of Ashland or Talent, as well as those within the urban growth boundaries of both cities. Green debris is an additional service charge.

This is a great way to help keep organics out of the trash and our landfills. Branches must be less than three (3) inches in diameter, and must fit inside the cart provided.


Recology Ashland offers a great commingle household recycling service for our customers inside the urban growth boundary. NO plastic bags, glass, motor oil, shredded paper or paper egg cartons. Learn more about commercial cardboard collection.

Glass and Motor Oil: Because of our semi-automated collection method, glass and used motor oil cannot be recycled in your commingled roll-cart. We will provide additional containers exclusively for glass and motor oil. Please do not place glass inside plastic bags.

Glass: All glass food, beverage jars and bottles. Remove metal lids and place in the trash bin.

Used Motor Oil: Put the used motor oil in a plastic container with a screw-top lid. Make sure it is well-sealed.


What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, broken glass to name a few. Only put un-recyclable materials into your garbage cart.

Cart Placement

  • Place carts curbside in the street for service by 7 AM on your service day, with the wheels against the curb and the arrows on the lid pointed toward the street.
  • If you live on a street without a curb, place the carts on the roadside, 3 feet apart, and facing toward the street.
  • Space your carts approximately 3 feet apart.
  • Make sure the lids of your carts are closed and your cart is not over full, to prevent material from falling out as it is serviced

On Call Program, Sticker Program & Pre-paid Yellow Bags

For customers who produce small amounts of trash.

These programs have been discontinued and are no longer being offered. However, if you have unused stickers or yellow bags, they will not expire and may still be used. Nothing will change until you use your last sticker or bag.

Once you’ve run out of stickers or bags, you may place your cart out no later than 7:00 a.m. on your service day, and your driver will empty the cart and make a note for the office. We will bill you for all pickups during the quarter. Customers with bag service will need to notify our office in order to deliver a bin for service.
