City of Chico

Butte County

Waste Management provides high quality refuse and recycling collection services to local residents and businesses. We are justifiably proud of taking care of our customers, while working to keep efficient operations and fair rates. We have worked well with our local communities to offer programs that meet and exceed state-mandated recycling requirements, and have been proactive in areas of waste reduction, recycling yard trimmings processing and conversion of diesel vehicles to alternate and less polluting fuels.

Butte County Service Alert - Monday, Nov 12 - Regular collection service is resuming in the City of Chico. Surrounding communities may still experience service interruptions due to road closures and mandatory evacuation. Please place your carts curbside on your regular collection day. If not serviced, please bag excess trash for pickup on your next collection day. We apologize for the inconvenience.


On August 15, 2017 Chico City Council approved franchise agreements with Waste Management and Recology standardizing waste collection rate and services.

Under the new plan residential trash, recycling and green waste collection provided by Waste Management are included in a single rate. Click here for more information about residential services.

The agreement also establishes commercial service zones, which designated service providers by geographic area. Click here to learn more about service options.

For some customers inside the City of Chico, alley collection of trash and recycling is available. For safety reasons, green waste collection will only occur curbside on the street.

Please note customers with alley collection may be serviced on a different day than their neighbors opting for street collection. The following maps indicate collection days for alley service within the highlighted area.
