Single Family Homes
Recology Sonoma Marin offers weekly garbage service to customers. Included in the fee for garbage service is a weekly curbside recycling program and weekly compost service. Garbage service in the City of Rohnert Park is mandatory for all residents.
Residents may choose from 20, 32, 68, or 95-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 (compost). 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.
