Trash main

Side loader picking up 90 gallon container

The following services are provided to residents for the fee listed on the monthly water bill:  

  • Once a week trash collection
  • Twice monthly extra collection (rules apply; visit the extra collection page for details)
  • A free balefill pass once per month. The pass is good for one car, pick-up or 8 foot trailer load of garbage.
  • Free recycling at 9 different depots.

Service is provided to residents either at the curb or in the alley. All trash must be bagged and securely tied or taped closed, by City ordinance. This prevents litter when a container is emptied or knocked over.

Alley Service Residents with alley access share 300 gallon containers, one per every three houses. Each resident is allowed to use 1/3 of the container. The containers are located on one side of the alley.

Curbside Service
Residents without alley access are provided one 90 gallon roll-out container per household. Containers need to be rolled to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day. Roll the container into the gutter next to the curb; this prevents containers from blocking sidewalks.

Items not acceptable in trash containers: Please note that placement of the following items in your trash container may result in a $15 non-compliance fee added to your monthly bill.

  • Thursday route customers may not place grass, leaves or other yard waste in their containers with the exception of weeds. The yard waste ban will be gradually phased in over a 5 year period until all residential routes are under the ban.
  • Cooking/vegetable oil. Pour into a sealable container and take to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Since cooking oil is a liquid at room temperature, wait until oil completely cools before pouring it into your container. For more information visit the Cease the Grease page.
  • Oil, Gas, Cleaners, Cleaning Products, Pesticides, Herbicides, Propane Tanks, Batteries, Fluorescent Light Bulbs Explosives, Liquids, Paint, Hazardous Chemicals, No PCB's, Oil filled Transformers, Oil filled Capacitors.

Container Maintenance and Care Report broken lids and wheels to the solid waste office at (307)235-8246. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To keep your container clean, follow these tips:

  1. Bag all trash. This will keep your container free from odor and mess. It is also a city of Casper ordinance.
  2. Double bag pet wastes. When you clean your yard of dog wastes or empty a cat litter box, double bag the waste. This keeps the bag from breaking in your container or when it is emptied into the garbage truck.
  3. Do not put dead animals, fish guts, or other animal remains in your trash can. Take these items to the animal waste cell at the landfill. You can utilize the free balefill pass to dispose of these wastes.

If your container happens to become dirty or have odor you can clean the container. Clean the container using dish soap, baking soda and water. Use an old broom to scrub the container and then empty the contents on your lawn. Remember, bagging your trash will prevent odor and mess.
