There is no municipally administered trash collection service in Roseville. Residents are free to select from any trash hauler licensed to provide residential service in the city. The city is divided into zones. Trash and recycling pick up occur on the same day each week.
Reduce the amount of waste you generate and save money by getting a smaller garbage cart from your hauler. Trash haulers are required to offer different size carts so get only the size you think you need. The smaller the cart, the less you will pay for trash collection.
Recycle All You Can
Recycling is exempt from taxes. If you recycle more, you may be able to use a smaller garbage cart and increase your savings.

Some haulers charge additional fees such as a fuel charge or environmental fee but do not include these in the rate you are quoted.
