Frequently Asked Questions

ALL REFUSE MUST BE PLACED AT THE CURB BY 7AM ON YOUR COLLECTION DAY
Regular Refuse Collection is scheduled Monday through Thursday, from 7 A.M. until routes are completed. Refuse should be placed at the curb no sooner than 5pm on the preceding day. Containers should be removed as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours after pickup.


Q: When is the garbage picked up if Monday is a holiday?
A: If a holiday occurs on a weekday, collection for the remaining days of that week will be one day late. Holidays include:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Q: What size trash containers are allowed?
A: City Ordinance states that trash containers cannot exceed a 35-gallon capacity and cannot weigh over 60 lbs when full. Because of the health and safety issues associated with repeatedly picking up oversized trash containers, the City of Troy does not empty these containers. If you own a trashcan over the 35-gallon limit, you have several options. The first is to wheel your container to the curb, remove the bags, and set the bags by the curb for pick-up. The second is to purchase a new container that does not exceed the 35-gallon limit. The third option is to purchase a 90-gallon polycart from our waste hauler, Tringali Sanitation. This 90-gallon cart is hydraulically lifted and emptied into the truck. It does not have to be lifted by the workers. If you are interested in the 90-gallon cart, please contact Tringali Sanitation at (248) 585-9120.
