Trash Pick Up Schedule

Leaf Bag Pick Up Schedule

The City of Ashtabula provides curbside trash pick-up for our residents for a monthly fee. We will provide the equivalent of one pickup per week of ordinary and reasonable accumulation of solid waste with a combined limit of seven (7) bags and three (3) containers. Your pick-up day can be found HERE.

Be sure to provide suitable, portable, approved containers for holding all solid waste. These containers should be water-tight and have suitable handles along with a tight fitting lid. Containers should be no more than thirty-two (32) gallons. Plastic bags of high density tensile strength are acceptable containers so long as said plastic bags are securely tied or sealed and are otherwise water-tight. When possible, please use containers to avoid animals tearing the bags and spreading garbage on your property and in your neighborhood.

For a more detailed description of the rules and regulations the City has regarding solid waste, please see Chapter 951 titled Solid Waste Disposal in the Codified Ordinances for the City of Ashtabula.

If you have bulk items to dispose of, please call the Sanitation Office at (440) 993-8101 to schedule a pick-up. There is an additional charge for this service. Higher fees will be imposed for bulk items the City removes without being notified to schedule a pick-up. You can bring your bulk items to our Transfer Station for disposal as well. (Fee is based on weight of items to be disposed.) We can also dispose of your scrap tires at the Transfer Station for a small disposal fee per tire.

The City can provide Commercial pick-up at your business in container sizes ranging from 1 yard to 6 yards. Please call the Sanitation Office for prices and availability.
