Garbage & Recycling Information
- The City collects garbage once a week and recyclables every other week.
- Garbage & recyclables must be in your carts and must fit with the lid closed.
- Garbage & recyclables must be placed directly into your cart. If you put them in a bag inside your cart, the bag must be clear or transparent. Collection crews must be able to see the contents while dumping it.
- If you need to dispose of an item that is too large to fit into your cart, you can purchase a bulk item pick-up tag at the City Treasure's Office or bring the bulk item to the Stevens Point Drop-off Site during drop-off hours for a fee.
- All carts must be at curb or street side by 7:00 a.m. They cannot be out earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day before collection and must be off curb/street side by 12:00 midnight the day of collection. Any garbage or recyclables placed out beyond these hours is subject to removal with the costs charged to the property owner.
