Folsom SmartCart Recycling Program

The City of Folsom SmartCart Recycling Program offers residents a blue cart for mixed recyclables, a black (labeled) or green cart for green waste and a gray cart for household trash. The gray garbage cart is serviced weekly and the green waste and recycling carts are serviced every other week. The collection schedule
can be used to find the service days for your home.
