Municipal Solid Waste Collection Services       SEE INFORMATION BELOW RIGHT

Residential and designated business solid waste and residential yard waste is collected once each week in Bossier City. Please contact the office with questions regarding your pickup day and holiday schedule changes.

Residences having curbside pickup will be provided with a 96 gal trash cart on wheels. Please contact the office if you need a trash cart to be delivered or if repairs need to be made to an existing cart. Household garbage and trash must be bagged and containerized in the 96 gal trash cart. Residents with curbside pickup may request an additional city cart for a charge of $4.00 per month added to the sanitation portion of their water bill. The monthly charge for curbside pickup is $16.00 per month billed on the water bill along with a $8.00 public service fee.

Residences having side yard pickup must provide their own trash receptacles. The city provides curbside pick up of large items, such as an appliances and furniture. Call Solid Waste at least one day before your scheduled pick up day (residential only). A different truck than your usual truck will remove these large items.

Commercial locations with city trash pickup must have all garbage containerized in the 96 gal trash cart provided by the city. Any extra trash or items to be placed in the cart must be disposed of by the customer.  City ordinance number 32 mandates that waste receptacles and solid waste not be placed on the curb prior to 9:00 a.m. on day before pickup day and must be removed from the curbside before 9:00 a.m. on the day after pickup day.

Trash receptacles should be placed out for pickup at least by 6:30 a.m. on day of scheduled pickup.

Carts should be placed with handles pointing toward the house.

Limbs should be cut not to exceed six feet in length, eight inches in diameter, 65lbs. for one item and should be stacked neatly on the curb.  The maximum amount of 6' limbs is a stack 15' long x 4' high. Please call the office in advance if there is a large amount. Additional fees may apply.

Residents may request that their used tires be collected from their curbside by calling the Solid Waste Office. These tires, which come from private vehicles, are collected by the City and recycled.
