Types of Collection Services

Twice a week curbside collection service is provided using three 100 gallon wheeled automated collection containers.

  • One container (green) shall be used only for disposal of greenwaste.
  • The second container (black) shall be used only for refuse.
  • The third container (blue) shall be used only for recyclables.

In an effort to better serve the community, the City of Hanford has modified the refuse collection schedule beginning February 2014.  With the schedule modification, the City's goal is to balance refuse routes and improve efficiency. 

For those residents who live north of Grangeville Boulevard, the City will empty the greenwaste and blue recycle containers on Mondays and Tuesdays.  The black refuse container will be emptied on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

For those residents who live south of Grangeville Boulevard, the City will empty the greenwaste container on Mondays and Tuesdays.  The blue recycle and black refuse containers will be emptied on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
