The City of Charleston utilizes an automated trash collection system. Trash customers are provided one 96 gallon trash can when they start service. The City will only pick up trash that is contained within City issued cans. Additional cans may be requested by contacting the Water Department at 479-965-2231. All City issued cans are the property of the City of Charleston and should not be removed from the location they are issued, even if you move or stop service.
Monthly trash pick-up rates:
Inside city limits: $17.00
Outside city limits: $21.00
Additional cans: $5.00/each (monthly)
The City has dumpsters which are open the first Saturday of the month from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Area residents will be able to drop off any Class 4 waste. Separate containers for metal and non-metal are available. Please no household or hazardous waste in either container. Tires, batteries, paint, and chemicals are prohibited.
The fee for this service is $20 for a pickup load and $30 for a trailer load. Fees for larger loads will be determined on site.
This map illustrates which day of the week trash pickup takes place for different areas of Charleston. If you have questions about your trash pickup day, please contact city hall at 479-965-2231.
The Recycling Center located on Guy Fenter Drive off South School Street opened in August 2005. Items currently being accepted include cardboard, paper, as well as plastic bottles and aluminum and tin cans. Please rinse out and flatten your aluminum and tin cans. Please remove lids from plastic bottles, rinse them and flatten them. Please remove any plastic cards from junk mail. Corrugated boxes and other cardboard should be flattened. Boxes can also be nested for recycling.
The Recycling Center was paid for in part by a series of grants from the Recycling Branch of the Solid Waste Management Division of ADEQ.
