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 City of Canton Sanitation Department will be implementing standardized wheeled carts for its curbside residential sanitation collection. This is being done to improve employee safety, increase departmental efficiencies, better contain trash, and ultimately improve the service we provide to our residents. The carts will be delivered curbside to your residence sometime between approximately September 14, 2020 and September 25, 2020. Please follow the Wheeled Carts link for more information.
Please be advised that a select number of residents will have their trash day changed beginning the week of July 27, 2020. Residents affected by this change would have received a letter in the mail detailing the change in their trash collection day. If you did not receive a letter, you scheduled trash collection day has not changed. Please follow the Route Changes link to view the changes made.
How Much We Service
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.
We have opened some new options for bulk waste removal; here is a list of some of the things we can do for you:
- 14/15 yard and 20 yard roll off boxes for garbage and construction and demolition debris!
- 6/8 yard front-load dumpsters for landlords to put set-out or move-out materials. We charge only the standard rate so save money, save time, save the headache and call us at 330-489-3020.
