|Unincorporated Pleasanton Weekly Garbage Service|
Rates Based on Garbage Cart Size
Allied Waste Services provides garbage collection services. The all-inclusive rate for garbage, recycling and yard clippings collection depends on the size of your BLUE garbage cart. Garbage cart size options include 20, 32, 64 and 96 gallons. For rate information call 925-603-1144 and press 1 or log on to www.wastediversion.org.
Garbage, recycling and yard clippings are collected weekly on the same day. Place carts curbside or streetside at least 2 feet apart from each other with the wheels facing the curb.
|Be sure all materials fit inside your cart with the lid closed.|
|Before discarding items, consider reusing or donating them.|
|Place trash only in your garbage cart.|
|Do not place recyclables, yard waste or hazardous waste in your garbage cart.|
|Carts must be placed at the curb the night before or by 6 a.m. on your collection day.|
|Emptied carts must be stored on your property out of public view.|
|Leave at least two (2) feet of space between your garbage cart and any other object including your yard waste and recycling carts and any street obstacles such as mailboxes, cars or portable basketball hoops.|
Standard service location is curbside or streetside. However, you can request on-property service (garbage and yard clippings only) for an additional monthly fee. On-property carts will be collected from a designated area on the resident's property within 75 feet of the road. Recycling will continue to be collected curbside or street side.
If your home is on hilly terrain or has long driveways, steep or narrow streets or overhead trees and wires, you may be in a hard-to-serve (HTS) area and may be charged an additional fee. A smaller, non-automated truck will provide collection in these areas.
No hazardous waste:
Do not place household hazardous waste, batteries (including alkaline), fluorescent light bulbs or electronics in any of your carts.
As part of your annual solid waste service, Allied Waste Services provides two scheduled "community" garbage cleanups and one on-call "individual" garbage cleanup per year.
You will be notified by mail at least two weekends in advance of your community cleanups. For your on-call cleanup, please call two weeks in advance or visit Customer Service and schedule your pickup online.
Cleanup material may not exceed 2 cubic yards (equivalent to fourteen 32-gallon bags, maximum 50 pounds per bag). No single item may weigh more than 200 lbs.
No large appliances or furniture will be collected. Branches and wood must be bundled and be 4 feet or less in length and 24 inches or less in diameter. Hazardous materials will not be collected. Do not place in blue cart. The container in which your materials are placed will also be taken away.
