Auburn residents have weekly collection for garbage and compostables (yard and food waste) and every-other-week collection for recycling. Place containers at the curbside by 7:00 a.m.
If your container(s) were at the curb by 7:00 am and were not emptied, please report a missed collection by clicking here or call 1 800 592-9995 (M-F 7 AM - 5 PM).
Waste Management observes three annual holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas (Dec 25), and New Year's Day (Jan 1). All other holidays will not affect your collection schedule.
Weekday holidays will delay collection by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday customers will be collected on Friday and Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.
