Trash, Recycling and Green Waste

Welcome to Residential services Web page. The Solid Waste Collections Division provides curbside collection of trash, recyclables and green waste as well as collection of bulky items by appointment three times per year.








SmartCart Recycling Program

The City of Folsom SmartCart Recycling Program provides color coded containers for separating household waste. Trash is placed in grey cans and picked up weekly. Recyclables are placed in blue cans and yard waste in green cans. Recycling and green waste are picked up every other week. A collection schedule and list of acceptable items are mailed annually or can be accessed anytime on our website.  If you would rather access the collection schedule electronically, you can request to be removed from our mailing list.
