Holidays may affect your collection day for garbage, recycling and composting

Changes to collection schedule December 25 – January 5

All garbage, recycling and compost collection in Portland will happen one day later than usual from December 25, 2018 to January 5, 2019. Monday customers will have regular pick-up on December 24 and December 31, 2018.

Leave carts at the curb if snow piles up

Extreme winter weather in Portland may delay collection of your garbage, recycling and composting roll carts. Leave your carts at the curb when snow and ice arrive, and your garbage and recycling company will collect them as soon as driving conditions permit.

Visit to sign up for weekly email reminders that include winter weather collection alerts when necessary. Customers without email can always call 503-823-7202 or their garbage and recycling company.
