The city uses an automated cart collection system to collect household refuse. Place your household refuse or recycling in the designated 65-gallon or 95-gallon garbage cart provided by Columbia County Recycling and Solid Waste. Any refuse or recycling placed outside of the cart will not be collected. 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.
Garbage is collected on a weekly basis; recycling is collected every other week. The 2023 Garbage and Recycling Calendar for the City of Lodi is an easy reference guide to determine which day garbage or garbage and recycling are collected.
More information on garbage and recycling can be found on the Garbage and Recycling page.
