Residential Curbside Rates

The following rates apply to single-family homes, condominiums, and townhomes with individual cart service for garbage, recyclables, and compostables. Residents may recycle compostable organic materials such as food scraps, soiled paper products, plants, yard trimmings, and clean wood in their compost carts.  Curbside customers are billed quarterly. Curbside rates are based upon the size of garbage cart requested. Four sizes of residential garbage carts are available:

Size Monthly Rate Quarterly Rate
20-gallon $22.30 per month $66.90 per quarter
35-gallon $27.54 per month $82.62 per quarter
64-gallon $47.52 per month $142.56 per quarter
96-gallon $75.71 per month $227.13 per quarter

If you can recycle more and "trash" less, you can save money by getting a smaller garbage cart.  Call Waste Management (925-837-3356) to exchange your cart size. One free cart exchange per year.

Residential curbside services include weekly recyclables, compostables, and motor oil collection at no additional charge. The standard recycling and compost carts are 64-gallons each. If you regularly overfill your 64-gallon recycling cart, you may trade it in for a 96-gallon cart at no extra charge. An additional compost cart is available at no extra charge.    Details on residential rates, including extra services, are provided at the link below:
