Curbside Garbage

Waste Management provides weekly, once a month or on-call garbage service. Options vary by service area.

For customers in the City of Klamath Falls and Klamath County within the Urban Growth Boundary - 35, 64 and 96 gallon rollcarts are provided by Waste Management.

Containers Out The Night Prior

Collection times may vary as routing schedules change, and so it is very important to have all containers at the street the night prior to your collection day. We appreciate your cooperation.

Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.

Container Placement at the Street

Place carts:

  • Three (3) feet apart
  • At least three (3) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences
  • Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible
  • Cart lids opening toward street
When possible, trucks with robotic arms will lift, empty and replace the carts without the drivers leaving the trucks, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestion.

Securely bag loose and dusty materials such as ashes, kitty litter, sawdust, animal waste, and packing "peanuts" before placing in the garbage can.

Weight Limit 60 Pounds (Overweight containers will not be emptied)

For your safety and the safety of your collectors, please limit each of your containers to the following weights:

Item Weight Limit
32 Gallon Roll Cart Weight Limit 60 lbs.
60 Gallon Roll Cart Weight Limit 100 lbs.
90 Gallon Roll Cart Weight Limit 145 lbs.

Extra Garbage

There is an additional charge for each extra bag or container (up to 32 gallon 60 lb. limit and bags 35 lb. limit) that doesn't fit in your garbage container with the lid closed. If you often have extra garbage, you may want to increase your garbage container size to avoid overflow and extra garbage charges.

Temporary Garbage Services

Large containers are available for temporary projects such as remodeling and construction. Contact Waste Management Customer Service or 1-800-808-5901 (M-F 7 AM - 5 PM, SAT 9 AM - 1 PM).

Reduce Your Garbage Costs!

Garbage Rates vary according to cart size.
Recycling may help reduce your garbage enough that you may be able to order a smaller size and lower your garbage bills.
