Ask the Curbside Hotline Operator: Who picks up my garbage?

Curbside collection containers

Q: Who picks up my garbage – the City of Portland or a private company?

A: Private companies provide curbside collection to households in franchised areas of the city. The company you have depends on where you live. The City oversees these companies and sets city-wide rates and service options.

Whether you are buying a house for the first time, or moving across town, find the company that services your area online and sign up for free email reminders at

For future reference, the name and phone number of your garbage and recycling company is on your bill or the side of the green composting and blue recycling roll carts.
