Pleasanton Residential Garbage Cart

Pleasanton residents have the ability to choose the appropriate size container for their garbage needs. Sizes available are 35 or 95 gallon carts. Service is provided on a weekly basis, Monday through Friday, except for Holidays (see Holiday information). Please do not place dirt, rock or toxic materials in your cart.

If you have extra trash you need picked up, please call us at least 24 hours in advance so we may notify the driver.

To ensure your pickup, please place your cart at the curb the night before your scheduled pickup. Please place carts with at least three feet between each cart using these five easy to follow rules.

State of California Penal Code Section 402b
 
Any person who discards or abandons or leaves in any place accessible to children any refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance, having a capacity of one and one-half cubic feet or more, which is no longer in use, and which has not had the door removed or the hinges and such portion of the latch mechanism removed to prevent latching or locking of the door, is guilty of a misdemeanor. Any owner, lessee, or manager who knowingly permits such a refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance to remain on premises under his control without having the door removed or the hinges and such portion of the latch mechanism removed to prevent latching or locking of the door, is guilty of a misdemeanor. Guilt of a violation of this section shall not, in itself, render one guilty of manslaughter, battery or other crime against a person who may suffer death or injury from entrapment in such a refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance.

 
The provisions of this section shall not apply to any vendor or seller of refrigerators, iceboxes, deep-freeze lockers, clothes dryers, washing machines, or other appliances, who keeps or stores them for sale purposes, if the vendor or seller takes reasonable precautions to effectively secure the door of any such refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance so as to prevent entrance by children small enough to fit therein.

 
(Amended by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1122.)
