Collection Schedule

Latah Sanitation, Inc. observes the following holidays:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

If, during the holiday week, your regular garbage day falls on or after the holiday, your garbage will be collected one day late that week. If your regular garbage day falls before the holiday, your trash will be collected as usual.

Garbage routes are subject to change. Before the holiday, please check the Lewiston Morning Tribune or call Latah Sanitation, Inc. at (877) 777-5724 if you have any questions.

Three Can or Bag Limit: Please remember, you are only allowed to set out three bags or cans of garbage per week, even if you didn’t put your garbage out the week before.

Size and Weight Restrictions: Please remember that oversize and overweight garbage cans can cause serious injury to our collection workers. Garbage cans must be no larger than 39 gallons in capacity and cannot weigh more than 60 pounds when full. When setting out garbage bags, make sure they weigh no more than 35 pounds to eliminate potential litter problems from breaking bags.

Bag Your Trash: Even if you use garbage cans, please place your trash in tied plastic bags to prevent litter.

Can Your Trash: If you place your trash out in a bag, please consider using a garbage can too. Dogs and wildlife can easily tear bags, creating litter problems. Garbage cans can help reduce this problem.
