I have some old paint, oil and gasoline at my house. How do I dispose of it?
Please visit our Household Hazardous Waste page for more information on drop off locations.
Where can I find information on what items you accept?
You can find it right here.
Why am I asked to separate my recyclables into different baskets when your driver just throws it all into the same place in the truck?
Great question! You will be glad to learn that your hard work is not being undone. It simply appears that the baskets are all being emptied into the same place. Inside the opening, called a hopper, there are dividers that keep the materials from the different baskets separated.
Why do I have to pay for garbage service?
Garbage service is a mandatory service. Chapter 9.08 of the City Code requires every property owner to pay the City’s solid waste contractor (Republic Services) for waste service if he/she has electric service to the property turned on. Clark County's and Henderson’s Ordinances contain similar mandatory-service requirements. For links to these ordinances online please select your municipality below.

- What is automated collection? Is automated collection right for my community?
Automated collection refers to the process of having equipment—not people—lift and dump trash into garbage collection vehicles. Over the years, equipment improvements—better lift systems, durable hydraulics and fuel efficiency—have helped to make automated collection the standard collection method in the industry. With automated collection, collecting garbage is cleaner, safer and more efficient for everyone. We believe automation is your best option for the management of solid waste. In communities across the country, we have been able to prove that automation is the best choice. Determining whether automated collection is right for your community begins with a thorough understanding of the current system and its costs. Learn more about automated collection
