All can-collected properties were issued a new refuse (trash) cart for landfill-bound materials
Organics carts were also delivered unless the resident or property owner opted out.
All program carts are the property of State College Borough.
Carts have a 10-year warranty and damage due to normal use will be covered. Misuse or abuse that causes damage will be the responsibility of the resident.
If you have moved into the area recently, please contact the Public Works Department for more information on how to obtain a cart.
How & When Do I Place My Cart for Collection?
Diagram of what to do with extra material.
Carts should be presented for collection where delivered unless you have at-door service, which is available for a fee (unless exemption approved).
Carts should be 3’ from any obstruction, including trees, signs and other carts when presented for collection.
At-door service requires a 3’ clear path from the cart to the street with no snow, brush, cars or other obstructions to impede the collector.
Do not place materials on top of cart for collection.
Lids should be closed to keep pests and rainfall out and waste in the cart.
Carts should be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
Holidays may delay your collection day. Please see Holiday Schedule for details
Refuse, organics and red-bin recycling are all collected on the same day.
If you have more material than will fit in your cart, place it at the curb on collection day beside the Borough-issued cart. All material except brush and loose leaves in leaf collection season should be in a container for collection.
