Customer Support


  • Rental Properties: We require new tenants to present a copy of the rental agreement before we can start service.
  • Pittsburg Municipal Code (8.04.210 – Collection of charges by the refuse collector) states: It is mandatory to have weekly garbage service, and it is the owner’s responsibility for this service. New tenants must provide their rental/lease agreement and photo ID to start service. As long as there are no outstanding bills at the property, we will open up an account for your new tenant. However, when there is an outstanding balance, we require the past due balance to be resolved before service will be restarted at the property in the tenant’s name.
      • Per the Pittsburg Municipal Code: 8.04.080 Collection Containers Placement: all collection containers shall be maintained in a code-compliant location and screened from public view. Additionally, containers must be put away, away from public view, no later than 8 pm day of service. Thank you for your cooperation.
