We provide residential organics, recycling, and garbage collection to the communities of Live Oak, Marysville, Wheatland, Yuba City and the counties of Yuba and Sutter. At Recology Yuba Sutter we will work with you to tailor recycling programs based on your needs.
Leaves, grass clippings, branches, and weeds can go in your green organics bin. NEW -Recology now accepts food scraps like banana peels and chicken bones and food-soiled paper in your green bin!*
Paper, cardboard, glass bottles, aluminum/tin cans, and hard plastics (no plastic bags or thin film plastics) can go in your blue bin.
What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, and broken glass to name a few.
*Please note: food scraps collection does not apply to Yuba City residents. These customers should only place yard waste in their green bins.
Please place containers at the curb by 5:00 am on your service day, or the night before. Do not place materials on top or next to your containers. You may dispose of occasional excess garbage by calling our office at least a day before your service day – fees apply, or by scheduling a Bulky Item Pickup.
