Recology provides garbage service Monday through Saturday every week, except for the following holidays: New Years Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. When these holidays fall on a weekday, garbage service will be delayed one day. For example, if a holiday falls on a Tuesday, regular Tuesday customers will receive refuse collection on Wednesday, and Wednesday customers will receive refuse collection on Thursday, etc. Friday customers will have their pickup on Saturday. Regular service resumes the week following the holiday. Any holiday not mentioned does not affect the pickup schedule.

Refuse Billing
Refuse charges are determined by the size of the garbage can/dumpster serviced at the property. Permanent and temporary debris boxes or compactors are billed according to the tons of refuse collected by the garbage company.

To open a garbage account, report a missed pickup, request new cans or change the size of your trash can, please contact Recology at (800) 243-0291. A Customer Service Representative can help you with any questions or concerns regarding garbage, recycling, yard waste, and street sweeping.

The Franchise agreement is available online [large file, may take several minutes to load].  

Garbage Pick-Up Days

Garbage, recycling, and compost cans are serviced weekly by Recology.  To determine your collection day, please see the Garbage Days schedule.

Street Sweeping

Recology provides weekly street sweeping  throughout the City of Rohnert Park. The street sweeping day will follows collection day.  Some streets are designated with "No Parking" signs on street sweeping days. Please observe all posted signs regarding parking. In neighborhoods that do not have posted signs regarding street sweeping, please try to avoid parking on the street on your scheduled sweeping days. This will allow for maximum cleaning of the streets and help keep our City looking as pleasant as possible.  See street sweeping schedule.
