Trash and recycling are picked up on the same day every week. Trash and recycling should be placed outside between 7:00 PM the day before and 7:00 AM the day of collection. Be sure to place all trash in a sturdy container with a lid or a sealed plastic bag. Container should weigh no more than 40 lbs. For recycling you may use any sturdy plastic bin that holds 32 gallons or less. Clearly mark the bin “recycling.”
To learn more and to determine your trash and recycling collection day, go to the Philadelphia Streets Department website. Trash collection can be delayed by a day after a holiday or because of inclement weather.
TRASH DELAYED TILL SATURDAY DUE TO HOLIDAY.×
