Yardwaste collection is provided to customers that reside within the city limits of Vacaville. Customers that reside within Vacaville city limits receive one 96 gallon green yardwaste cart.

Yardwaste is used in a number of recycling processes, such as composting.  Green waste recycling produces rich compost which can be used by local residents and farmers, rather than going to waste in a landfill.

Please do not exceed weight limits. Our trucks can not lift more than 200 pounds. Place all carts at the curb on your collection day by 6:00 AM with the handles toward the curb, the lid completely closed and at least 5 feet of space between the carts.

Please contact Recology Vacaville Solano for more information.
