There is no garbage, recycling, or green waste pick-up on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Both of these holidays fall on a Friday this year. If your regular service day is Friday, your Christmas week pickup will be on Saturday, December 26, and your New Year’s week pickup will be on Saturday, January 2


If you have more garbage than will fit in your garbage cart, you can purchase “Bag-It” bags from the City. Place your extra garbage in the Bag-It bags, tie them off, and set them out on top of the curb next to your garbage cart on collection day. The price of the specially-marked Bag-IT bags ($7 each) includes the cost of the extra pickup. Extra garbage that is set out beside your garbage cart in regular garbage bags will not be picked up. You can purchase Bag-It bags form the City of San Ramon offices, 2226 Camino Ramon, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
