Residential Services

Clearlake residents who subscribe to curbside collection service are provided with:
  • A grey cart for trash: 20, 32, 64, or 96 gallon cart
  • A blue cart for mixed recyclables: 96 gallon cart
  • A green cart for yard waste: 96 gallon cart
Recycling and yard waste collection is included in the rate. Place carts at the curb or road edge the night before your pick-up day. All material must fit inside the cart and the lid must close. There should be at least three feet of clearance between each cart and 14 feet of overhead clearance. Keep carts away from all obstacles, such as cars and mailboxes, and away from overhead obstacles such as carport overhangs and tree branches.

Pre-paid Garbage Bags
Residents can also purchase pre-paid bags for garbage and put these bags out on the appropriate collection day. These bags are ideal for vacation homes and people that do not generate enough garbage to require regular weekly service. Bags can be purchased at the City of Clearlake offices, located at 14050 Olympic Drive, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
