Recology Sonoma Marin offers weekly garbage service to customers. Included in rates for garbage service is a weekly curbside recycling program and weekly compost service. Garbage service in the City of Cotati is mandatory for all residents.
Residents may choose from 20, 32, 64, or 96-gallon rolling garbage carts. The cost of your service is based on the size of your garbage cart. The smaller your garbage cart, the less cost. The blue cart is for recycling and the green cart is for yard waste and food scraps.
Garbage collection begins early in the morning, so it is important that your cart be at the curb the night before to assure your collection is not missed. View information on cart placement. If you have extra garbage, call us at least one-day before your regular collection day to schedule extra collection service.
We provide weekly curbside collection for garbage, recyclables, and compost. Residential rates are based off of the size of your garbage cart. Recycling and compost service are free of charge.

The size of your cart depends on you and your family’s needs. Super recyclers or small families may be able to reduce their waste and subscribe to the 20 gallon service.
Please do not over-stuff or compact the cart, as all of the material may not be released into the truck.
