Residents and businesses can find out who their trash removal provider is by entering the property code into a city's website search engine. It is helpful to know if the property is in an opt-out, municipality or unincorporated county.
Individuals can also search for their trash removal provider by entering the street address into a specific search engine on a city's website. However, the easiest way to gain access to this information is by calling the city in which you live and asking a county representative. These phone numbers are typically located on the city government's home page or under a Contact Us tab. Callers should be prepared to share their full street address in order to receive accurate information, and the same advice applies for both residential and commercial locations. If a resident knows what time the trash is removed each day or week, it is also possible to identify the removal service by looking at the truck or speaking with a worker directly.
Citizens should also know that only select counties include recycling pickup in conjunction with trash removal. Depending on their location, individuals may be responsible for setting up their own recycling pickup, trash removal or both. If an individual is unhappy with the current trash removal provider for their location, it is best to speak with a county representative to either resolve the problem or discontinue service.
