Collection Information

WM Northwest Auburn residents have weekly collection for garbage and yard+food waste and every-other-week collection for recycling.

Place carts out by 7 am or no earlier than 24 hours before collection day.

Place 2 feet apart with lids opening toward the street.

Place 3 feet from obstructions such as cars, trees, fences, mailboxes.

Where available, place your carts in grass planter strips between the curb and sidewalk.

Where grass planter strips are not available, place carts out in such a way that does not restrict the reasonable and safe use of the street, sidewalk, or bicycle lanes by pedestrians, bicyclists, and automobiles.

WM Recycle Right

The City of Auburn and WM use "Recycling Only Oops" to monitor contamination in recycling carts. If a driver spots unaccepted materials in your recycling cart, the cart will be tagged letting you know how to properly dispose of those items.

Our increased efforts in recycling right and reducing contamination is a result of new restrictions by China in the type of materials collected for recycling. We all need to do our part in helping to make recycling sustainable for years to come.
