Where to Place Materials

Please place carts as shown on the diagram so they do not block drain flow in gutters. Allow at least 2 feet between the carts and keep carts at least 3 feet away from cars, boats and other objects to avoid damage from automated collection vehicles.

Important Notes:

  • Material must fall freely from carts when dumped, please do not overload
  • Containers may not be serviced if they are overloaded, are not accessible or include unacceptable materials
  • Curbside collection starts at 6:00 am. Containers may not be placed at the curb before 12:00 noon the day before pick-up and should be removed within 24 hours of the time of collection.

Used motor oil and filter recycling

Recycling Used Motor Oil in West Sacramento is as close as the curb. Simply call Utility Billing Division at (916) 617-4589 and ask for a used motor oil container. The container, and a filter recycling bag, will be delivered to your home within 2-3 business days. Once full, place the sealed container of used motor oil at the curb, near the yard waste cart, on your regular refuse collection day. After draining your used oil filter, place in the reclosable bag and place alongside the oil container. The oil will be emptied from the container and the container left for reuse.
