Residential Trash Can Requirements

Category: Sanitation / Trash

Q : Is there a size limit on the size garbage can used for residential trash collection ?

A : While there is no limit on the number of trash cans or bags residents can place at the curb, cans with a capacity greater than 35 gallons will not be emptied by City crews.  Over sized cans are also tagged by City staff to indicate the problem.  If you feel your can was tagged in error, please contact the Public Works Department at (660) 827-3000.
