The City is committed to cleanliness by facilitating trash and recycling collection. To uphold this commitment, the City contracts with GreenWaste Recovery, a private hauler who provides our residents and commercial businesses with trash, recycling and yard waste collection. If you have questions regarding collection dates, bin replacement, what to recycle or service changes, please contact GreenWaste Recovery .

If you have questions about what items are trash or what can be recycled, please visit What Goes Where or download the "What Goes Where?" app. GreenWaste Recovery also recycles holiday trees during the first 3 weeks of the new year. For more information visit GreenWaste Recovery.

GreenWaste Holiday Pick Up Schedule: GreenWaste does not collect on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's Day. If regular collection is on a holiday, collection for the rest of the week is delayed by one day. For more information visit GreenWaste Recovery.

Seaside Municipal Code 8.28.100 requires Universal Service. If you believe you qualify as a Self-Hauler please complete the Application and submit to the Public Works department.
