Each residence is allowed:

  • 14 bags, boxes, or cans of refuse, or

  • 2 bulky items

All items (excluding furniture and appliance) must be contained and weigh less than 60 pounds. Loose items will not be collected.
Excess materials will not be collected. A $40.23 freon charge will apply for all freon appliances.

Not accepted items:

  • Construction and demolition debris

Additional Notes:

  • Yard trimmings must be less than 3” in diameter X 3’ long and must be bundled
  • All small motors (i.e. lawnmowers) must be drained of gas and oil

If it’s possible that some of your items, such as sofas and tables, could find a new life, please consider donating to a non-profit in Sonoma or Marin Counties. Not only will you be helping divert items from the landfill – you will also be helping a great organization!
