Change from Private to County-provided Refuse Collection Service

The basic steps required to request a change from privately-contracted refuse collection service to County-provided service (or vice versa) are

  1. Submit a petition for the change, signed by 25 percent of the homeowners in your proposed collection area.
  2. Division of Solid Waste Services staff will review the petition.
  3. If the petition is accepted, all homeowners within the proposed boundaries will be notified by mail, and will be asked to vote whether or not they want the County-provided service.
  4. A public hearing on the proposed change is held
  5. The votes are tallied after the hearing.
  6. A decision is made and homeowners are notified.
