Collection Rules and Regulations
All solid waste customers, except those in the City of Moscow, must have their trash on the curb by 5:00 a.m. on their garbage day to ensure collection. City of Moscow residents must have their trash on the curb by 7:00 a.m. to ensure collection. If you are unsure of your garbage day, click on the schedule box at the top of this page for more information.
Garbage must be placed within 5 feet of the curb, alley or where your private driveway intersects the road. Carry out service is available for those who are unable to carry their trash to the curb due to physical limitations.
Please place garbage out for collection in standard 20-36 gallon garbage cans with handles and lids. To control litter, please bag your trash inside the can. For the safety of our collection workers, we require that garbage cans weigh no more than 60 lbs. when full. Overweight cans may be tagged and left at the curb at your collection worker's discretion.
If you have more trash than your garbage can(s) will hold, you may place additional trash out for collection in sturdy plastic trash bags. Full bags must weigh less than 35 pounds. If your household is on a pay-by-the-can billing schedule, you will be charged for any trash above your normal service level.
NO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS ALLOWED! For more information on hazardous materials and their proper disposal, please see the Household Hazardous Waste section of this website.
If you have medical waste which may pose a hazard to our collection workers, please see Medical Waste under the Special Services section of this website.
All animal bedding and feces must be placed in a securely tied plastic bag before it is placed in your household trash.
Please solidify any liquids with an absorbent material such as kitty litter, and place in a securely tied plastic bag before placing it in your household trash.
Please note: Due to travel distances, it is not always possible to go back to collect missed garbage in rural areas.
