What to do when bad weather delays pick-up of your garbage, recycling and yard debris
Occasionally, icy or snowy roads make it unsafe for our trucks to be out. We always do our best to put the safety of our customers and their property as well as our employees and equipment first during adverse weather conditions. Since weather changes can occur rapidly during bad weather it is difficult to predict the length of any service delays in advance.
However, in the event of a delay in service, we will do our best to ensure that service is provided as soon as possible after the weather improves.
During inclement weather conditions, driving may be hazardous and the collection of garbage, yard debris, and recycling may be delayed or postponed. In the case of severe weather, collection will be prioritized in the following order:
WHAT TO DO
· When garbage, recycling and yard debris must be delayed or postponed due to inclement weather, a reasonable effort will be made to pick up before the customer’s next scheduled collection day. Evening and Saturday collections may be necessary.
· If garbage, recycling and yard debris collection must be delayed or postponed to the next scheduled collection day, twice the amount of the current subscribed service level will be collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day at no additional charge.
· We will make every effort to remedy all weather-related misses in a timely manner. Please be aware that while your street may be clear, access to your neighborhood may not. After the severe weather event, drivers may need to deviate from their regular scheduled routes in order to make up snow day misses. This may impact your collection. We appreciate your patience during this time.
· During inclement weather, please leave your roll carts at the curb. This will ensure your carts will be emptied when roads are deemed clear enough for safe passage.
· No credits or refunds for missed collections due to inclement weather or issues beyond hauler control. Postponed collections are not considered missed pickups because the service is provided in due course. Credits are not available for postponed collections due to inclement weather.
We do apologize for the inconvenience but please remember we are making safety a priority during the inclement weather.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

With weekly or monthly trash service, customers are provided with two recycle tubs. If within the city limits, customers are provided a 65 gallon yard debris roll cart.
Please don't ask our drivers to empty barrels, well cans, or underground storage containers.
Where to Put Your Container
Most customers place their garbage cans at the curb, although we are happy to pick up your can at your house for an additional fee.
Unless special arrangements have been made, your collection point should never require our drivers to enter a garage, building, or navigate steps. There must not be low hanging obstructions or wires restricting the driver's access. These restrictions help protect your privacy, safety, security, and even your pets-and they reduce the risk to our drivers. A long driveway without clearance, a driveway in poor condition, or a driveway with an inaccessible passage, means your can must be placed at the roadside.
PLEASE … roll carts must always be placed at the roadside.
Please make sure the lid on your cart/can is completely closed. Trash can escape from any can or cart that is filled too full, and on our automated routes, if a roll cart is so full the lid doesn’t completely close, trash can be scattered when the truck lifts it – and the driver is not able to see it. Oregon City Garbage will not be responsible for trash that may be scattered when your cart or can is over-loaded. Further, if the can or cart is full beyond capacity, you’ll be charged for an extra pick up.
Please let us know by calling (503) 656-8403 or click here, if you want a pickup of extra bags, cans, or boxes. You will be billed for each extra item on your next regular bill.
Extra trash must be tightly bundled, bagged, or boxed, and it may not weigh over 40 pounds. Place the extra next to your regular can.
