Collection Services

The City of San Diego has  provided trash collection services to the public for nearly 100 years. Trash is collected weekly, Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The collection day depends on where you live in the City.

Trash must be set out at the curb or alleyway by 6 a.m. for pickup. To help prevent litter in our neighborhoods, please bag or wrap all loose trash material before you place it in your trash container. It's OK to keep your recyclables loose.

There is no collection of City of San Diego trash, recyclables, or yard waste on the following City-observed holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
