Garbage & Recycling
Garbage Pickup (Non-Recyclable Materials)The city provides garbage pick up on Wednesdays at 7:00 a.m. If a normal garbage pick up day lands on a holiday, trash and recycling will be picked up the following day, unless indicated otherwise by Columbia County Recycling and Solid Waste. In the event that Columbia County Recycling and Solid Waste picks up garbage on a day other than after a holiday, the City of Lodi website will update to reflect that change.
The city uses an automated cart collection system to collect household refuse. Refuse is collected on a weekly basis. Place your household refuse in the 65-gallon or 95-gallon garbage cart provided by Columbia County Recycling and Solid Waste. Any refuse placed outside of the cart will not be collected. Specific information on this topic can be found in the Nonrecyclable Material section of the City of Lodi Ordinances.
Recycling PickupThe city also provides recycling pickup every other Wednesday. A calendar is available to help determine which days recycling is collected. Put your recyclable household refuse in the designated 65-gallon or 95-gallon recycling cart provided by Columbia County Recycling and Solid Waste and place it on the curb by 7 a.m. All materials should be placed inside the cart. Any recycling, such as large cardboard, that does not fit in the cart should be dropped off at the Public Works Building at 249 Water Street.
Acceptable recyclable materials include
- Plastic bottles and jars
- Glass bottles and jars
- Tin food cans
Garbage and Recycling Carts
Carts should be placed at the curb, not in the street, for collection. Please be sure to leave at least three feet of space on either side of the cart. Carts should not be placed in front of residences or businesses more than 24 hours in advance of the collection date. Additionally, carts should be removed from the front of residences or businesses within 24 hours after collection.
