Novato Disposal offers weekly garbage service to customers. Included in the fee for garbage service is a weekly curbside recycling program and weekly yard waste service.

Residents may choose from 20, 32, 68, or 95-gallon rolling garbage carts. The cost of your service is based on the size of your garbage cart. The smaller your garbage cart, the less cost. The blue cart is for recycling and the green cart is for yard waste.

Garbage collection begins early in the morning, so it is important that your cart be at the curb the night before to assure your collection is not missed.
