Solid Waste Collection and Disposal


California Waste Recovery Systems (Cal-Waste) has been providing solid waste removal and disposal services for Rancho Murieta since November of 2005. Cal-Waste has always provided excellent service to the residents of Rancho Murieta. At the May 15, 2013 District Board meeting, the Board of Directors approved an additional ten (10) year term of the Collection Services Agreement with Cal-Waste.

With the additional contract term, Cal-Waste will be providing some service enhancements, which include: household battery collection, cooking oil collection, e-waste collection, cell phone collection, universal waste collection, and an increase in the allowable volume of large item collection service. Click Here for more information.

Collection days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, depending on your street address. The midweek collection days avoids having containers left out by residents traveling over the weekend. Green waste and recycles are collected on alternate weeks. Garbage is picked up weekly. Hours of collection are no earlier than 7:00 a.m. and no later than 5:00 p.m., unless otherwise noticed.
