New Waste Collection Areas in Butte County

The County is now divided into three collection areas with one hauler exclusively serving each area. You will get a new hauler only if the hauler designated for your area is different than your current service provider. 

So, what do I do?

Very little. If you get a new hauler, they will contact you about any change in your pick-up day. Your new hauler will drop off new carts and take your old ones at some point in the next six months. Your new hauler will continue to collect your waste and recycling regardless of the carts your have until they are able to switch them out for new carts. Find your hauler by searching the map.
