The Neighborhood Clean Up allows each residence to place up to 5 cubic yards of unwanted items at their curb for collection annually and free of charge.

Basic Service Information

Correct Pile Size

When & Where: Annual Curbside Cleanup Day is provided to residents once per year. Materials must be placed out for collection in front of the residence and on the same side of the street.

Notification: The map above shows what month you can expect pick-up. Each resident will receive a door hanger approximately one week prior to their scheduled pick-up date. The door hanger will give details on what day to set out items as well as what items are not acceptable.

Amount: A pile measuring 7' x 6' x 4' is the maximum amount of material that will be accepted. This is equal to five cubic yards of material, which is about the size of a pick-up truck bed filled even with the top of the cab.

Oversized Piles

Oversized Pile

If a resident places an excessive amount of material (more than 5 cubic yards) at their curb, Republic Services crews will collect the first 5 cubic yards and leave a Non-Collection Notice (tag) on the remaining material. Residents will be told they need to immediately remove the extra material at the curbside following their Neighborhood Cleanup Day.  Republic Services will only collect 5 cubic yards of material without prior arrangement having been made. If the material remains at the curb for more than 24 hours after the Neighborhood Cleanup Collection day, Republic Services will return to the location to collect the material and the City will bill the homeowner for the charges associated with picking up the remaining material.

Regarding the Cost Charged for Oversized Piles

Charges for excess materials are as follows:

Calls in Advance

There is a charge for each additional 5 cubic yards beyond the first free 5 cubic yards that are collected, assuming the resident called in advance and the collection of all the material is done on the same day as the normal Neighborhood Cleanup. Click here to view current rate and service fees

Doesn't Call In Advance

If a resident exceeds 5 cubic yards, but has not called in advance, anything in excess of the allowed will be left in front of the residence and is then considered a Bulky Waste Pick-up. Bulky Waste Pick-ups are on Friday's only.

Residents will be informed that they can elect to self-haul their extra material to the Elder Creek Transfer Station; all residents of Elk Grove are entitled to one free trip per year.  Just show your CA ID with your Elk Grove address on it or your Elk Grove utility bill.
