Yard Trimmings, Recycle, & Trash

Whether you’re a business owner, property manager, or resident of the City of Colusa, we work with you to tailor recycling, composting, and landfill programs based on your needs.

Check out the Collection Calendar.


Leaves, branches, weeds, and plants go in the green waste cart. Green waste collection is available to all residents in the City of Colusa for no additional fee, and is collected every other week on your regular refuse collection day.



Materials like paper, bottles, cans, aluminum and most plastics (no plastic bags!). Recycling is collected every other week, on the same day as your regular refuse collection.



What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, and broken glass to name a few. Anything that does not go into the recycling or yard trimmings container can be put into the garbage container (except for hazardous waste). Garbage material is collected weekly.




Recycling and garbage containers are collected by a semi-automated sanitation truck. The automated truck requires ample room to collect containers safely and effectively.

        • Container Placement in Alley:  At least 6 inches clearance behind all containers and at least 12 inches between all containers.  Have out for collection the night before or by 6 am on collection day.
        • Container Placement in street:  At least 12 inches between all containers.  Containers must be placed curbside, not in driveways.  No vehicles in alleys on pick up day. Please keep it clear for the trucks.

        Contact us for more information on rates and containers.
