A city's garbage pickup schedule is usually posted on its website or on message boards of its local waste management agencies. Online schedules are usually printable and contain specific instructions for waste collection pertaining to local requirements.

Most waste collection agencies collect recyclable trash, yard waste, organic trash and hazardous waste on the same day using different trucks. Apart from scheduled waste collection, bulk collection of trash is scheduled based on individual request. Schedules for bulk waste collection are communicated individually, several days prior to the scheduled date. Follow instructions for bin placement and waste separation on the scheduled date for easy processing by the collecting agency.
