Unincorporated Area Service
Auburn residents have weekly collection for garbage and compostables (yard and food waste) and every-other-week collection for recycling.
Place carts out by 7:00 AM or no earlier than 24 hours before collection day.
Place 2 feet apart with lids opening toward the street.
Place 3 feet from obstructions such as cars, trees, fences, mailboxes.
Where available, place your carts in grass planter strips between the curb and sidewalk.
Where grass planter strips are not available, place carts out in such a way that does not restrict the reasonable and safe use of the street, sidewalk, or bicycle lanes by pedestrians, bicyclists, and automobiles.
Remove carts from public property no later than 24 hours after your collection day.
If your container(s) were at the curb by 7:00 AM and were not emptied, please report a missed collection by clicking here or call 1-800-592-9995 (M-F 7 AM - 7 PM, SAT 9 AM - 1 PM).
Waste Management observes three annual holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day (Dec. 25), and New Year's Day (Jan. 1). All other holidays will not affect your collection schedule.
Weekday holidays will delay collection by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday customers will be collected on Friday and Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.
