Winter weather reminders for garbage, recycling and composting

If extreme winter weather affects Portland again this winter, collection of your garbage, recycling and composting roll carts may be delayed.

snowy roll carts

Leave your carts at the curb and your garbage and recycling company will collect  them as soon as driving conditions permit.

While your street may be clear, access to and from your neighborhood may not.

In the case of severe weather, collection will be prioritized in the following order: 

  1. Garbage
  2. Recycling
  3. Composting

Know who to contact

Call your garbage and recycling company directly to find out their winter weather collection plans for any day you're concerned about. Find your company's phone number on your bill, the side of your roll cart, or on our website
