Sanitation

Welcome to our services page

Welcome to the online home of the Sanitation Department.  Here, you can find information about the City of Canton's standard weekly trash schedule, learn what is acceptable to place at the curb, and find out how you can ensure that your garbage is picked up every week without delay!

The Sanitation Department services roughly 24,000 structures in and around the city every week.  This amounts to approximately 31,000 tons (62 million pounds) of garbage every year from local residents.

Trash collection will take place in all weather, though the crews will not pick up garbage if the temperature falls to dangerous levels.  If this happens, we will issue a press release via the City's website and local media outlets.

To learn more about the Sanitation Department or trash pick-up schedules - follow the links on your right.

Recycling information?  You can visit the Canton City Health Department's web page to see information about E-Waste, tire (on or off the rim), paper or propane tank recycling at their website, www.cantonhealth.org.  The Health Department works closely with sanitation to effectively minimize landfill waste and reducing costs by promoting recycling and operating the recycling center for the City.

This is what we take at curbside... as well as paper, glass and household cans, etc.
