Butte County

Butte County Service Alert - Thursday, Nov 29 – We have resumed service to all our communities, including collection service to the City of Magalia, and are starting cleanup efforts this week.  If we do not get to you, we will be back on your normal scheduled service day starting next week.  NOTE: Monday collection route is still suspended until further notice. Please place bagged excess garbage next to your trash cart for free collection.  

FIRE DEBRIS: Please do not place burned materials or ash in your trash containers. We are not authorized to collect this material. Visit for information on fire debris clean up.


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.



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.

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.
