Here’s what you need to know:

Residential Trash

  • Nothing new here: Mixed waste collection will remain in the same customer cans.
  • No more “can averaging:” Each resident is allotted one can of trash per week rather than the previous “can averaging” program which allotted residents an average of 13 trash cans per quarter. 
  • Scheduled Overages: Up to 3 extra cans or bags of additional waste can be picked up on your normal service day, upon request 4 times per year. *Max 96-gallons total and 51 lbs each can or bag.* Must schedule ahead of time through your TTSD online customer portal under “MY ACCOUNT” at First time users may need to contact TTSD to get your customer account number and an invoice number: (530) 583-7800
  • Bulky items can be collected curbside on an on-call basis up to two times/year for free. (Please note that multi-family residents in a complex with 5+ units receive one bulky item pick-up for free per year.) Each collection can include up to 3-cubic yards of recyclable material, electronic waste, universal waste, AND up to 1 bulky item (mattress, couch, etc.). *Individual items cannot exceed 200 lbs.
