Oxnard residents have a choice of two sizes of curb carts (64-gallon/96-gallon) for the three-bin waste collection system. Follow the guidelines linked in the cart description above to take full advantage of the services available.
Use the curb cart with the blue lid for recyclables (glass, plastic, metal, paper, cardboard, etc.)
Use the curb cart with the green lid for green waste (yard clippings, grass, and starting January 1, 2022 – bagged food waste is accepted in the green waste cart)
Use the curb cart with the gray or black lid for trash (non-recyclable, non-organic solid waste)
To ensure your carts are serviced properly, please follow these guidelines:
- Starting January 1, 2022 – all single family residential customers will be switched to weekly collection of all 3 carts and you can place bagged food waste in your green cart for no additional fee!
- Place carts at least two feet apart and six feet from parked cars, mailboxes, or other obstructions.
- Cart handles and wheels should face toward your home.
- Carts may not be serviced if they are over-filled or exceed maximum container weight, are inaccessible, or contaminated with unacceptable material.
