Trash carts and recycling bins must be at the curbside no later than 7 a.m. Fridays. To help Friday collections stay on schedule, please follow these simple steps:
Residential trash is defined as waste material generated through the occupation and operation of a normal household. Excluded items include, but are not limited to, yard waste, construction & demolition debris, hazardous waste, oil, paint and chemicals. Excess trash exceeding the limit may be disposed of by affixing overage tags to bags and placing those bags next to your WCA trash cart. Overage tags are available for purchase at Riverside City Hall.
GFL of Riverside observes some holidays and will not collect trash or recycling on these particular holidays. Your materials will be collected on Saturdays of the following holiday weeks:
Place items at the curbside by 7 AM the day of the scheduled collection service. Please break down excess cardboard boxes and stack them next to your recycling container.
Items NOT Collected for Recycling:
Contamination of the waste stream poses a significant threat to the recycling markets. Remember – when in doubt, throw it out.
The city schedules free curbside yard waste collection several times each year, generally two dates in the spring and two dates in the fall. Collection dates will be published on the City of Riverside website and the city newsletter. Please follow the following yard waste collection guidelines:
Bulk Waste & White Goods
Residents may set out properly tagged bulky items at the curb for Friday collection. Bulky item tags are available for $10 each at Riverside City Hall. Each item must be tagged. Bulk items include: couch, chair, dresser, mattress, etc. Bulk item collection excludes appliances, items containing Freon, and electronics waste items such as televisions and computer monitors. Construction materials will not be collected.
