The current collection schedule for refuse is the following: (bins will typically be set out the evening prior, and then returned to the trashroom the day of pickup)
Garbage (brown bins) Tuesday Mornings
Compost (green bin) Thursday Mornings
Recycling (grey bins) Friday Mornings
All cardboard or other material boxes must be broken down prior to placement in the appropriate bin. This conserves space as 24 units share these bins.
It is required that everyone separate their trash into compost, recyclables, or trash. We are not allowed to mix any of the three in another bin, we will be fined if we do.
Please familiarize yourself with each of the categories of trash on the Oakland Recycles website. Note that if you have electronic or hazardous waste, you must drop that off at a collection site yourself:
