Do you find yourself in need of big trash disposal?
The Refuse Division has great options for you! We offer a temporary 3-yard Dumpster and a Bulky Item Drop-Off Site for our residential customers and for those even bigger projects we offer a Roll-Off Container service.
Temporary 3-Yard Dumpster
The temporary 3-yard dumpster is meant for general household trash, like items that would normally go in your grey, blue or green containers but it can also include some bulky items like a plastic lawn chair or broken ice chest. No construction and demolition material or household hazardous waste. This container is very useful when cleaning out a garage, taming an overgrown yard or even spring cleaning your home. For construction debris please see below for more options.
The temporary 3-yard dumpster is for a flat rate of $222.89, containers can be used for 30 days or 4 empties, whichever comes first. Meaning, on the 4th empty or if you have had the container for 30 days, we will remove the container unless you have requested otherwise with manager/supervisor approval for additional time/rental.
Deliveries will be done next business day, depending on availability.
Containers can be emptied on Mondays and/or Thursdays. To schedule your empty, please call in at least 1 business day prior to Monday or Thursday.
Roll-Off Container Service
For construction debris, a roof job, a remodel, furniture, or other large objects and big projects a Roll-Off may be needed. Our Roll-off’s come in 10, 20 and 30 cubic yard sizes (see photo). The cost of a Roll-off container is made up of several components.
For each Roll-off container rented there is a daily rental fee of $6.90.
Each time the container is emptied there is a haul fee of $300.86 and the landfill costs to dispose of the material.
Landfill costs can vary widely and are simply a “pass through cost” or whatever the landfill charges us to dump your items, we charge directly back to you. Typically the cost is by weight, $43.05 per ton for general waste. There are also charges for appliances, non-refrigerated appliances, tires based on size and mattresses. For a more detailed list of costs, you can call the Merced County Landfill at 209-723-4481 or at their website.
If you have a refuse account in good standing, the charges for dumpsters can be placed on your account. Or if you are a tenant and/or the refuse bill is not in your name, you can pay a deposit in advance.
For either of these types of dumpsters, service is provided on a next business day basis. The Public Works office is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
