Sanitation Service


It has now been over a year since the transition to Coeur d'Alene Garbage and we would like to thank the citizens and businesses of the City of Coeur d'Alene for your support.  Coeur d'Alene Garbage Service delivered approximately 38,000 toters and 1,500 commercial containers in a two month period.  We have recycled 4,128,000 pounds from Coeur d'Alene in the last 12 months, as well as collected 64,000 pounds of glass for repurposing from the new glass depots.  In our commitment to the recycling effort for the long term, we have built our own facility to process the recyclables.

In order to maximize the amount of usable recycling in the single stream, please do not put glass, yard waste or wood in the recycle bins.  Breakage and contamination ultimately reduces the amount of single stream which can be "truly" recycled.  

Please review the City solid waste rate sheets regarding rates for extras, adding containers, and more.

If you should have any concerns or further questions, please give us a call at 208-457-1820.

A few helpful reminders:

  • Keep your toters at least 3 feet apart for pickup.
  • Always have toters available by 6 a.m. on pickup day.
  • To clean your toter, fill with water and a bottle of pine sol and let sit overnight.
  • Please, no car parts or rebar in recycle bin. Please refer to the recyclables list if in doubt.
  • Do not put glass in your single-stream container
