Welcome Message

Welcome to the City of Canton's Sanitation Department. Here you will 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!

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.

The Weather

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.

Our Services

We have opened some new options for bulk waste removal; here is a list of some of the things we can do for you:
