Tulare’s Municipal Code requires all commercial businesses within the city limits of Tulare to have a trash service account.
Our Municipal Code and Ordinance states:
7.16.030 Refuse collection and street sweeping services compulsory.
All dwellings, apartment houses and place of business in which refuse waste accumulates within the city or upon streets or public highways which abut such property shall be required to utilize the collection and disposal and street sweeping services of the city and to pay the charges set forth for the services by the Department of Public Utilities of the city.(1995 Code, § 7.16.030)
We have 2 cubic yard, 3 cubic yard, 4 cubic yard and 6 cubic yard commercial bins available for trash.
Overfilled, overweight, or blocked bins will be assessed additional charges.
Please be aware, State Assembly Bill 341 requires any commercial business that generates 4 cubic yards or more of disposable trash per week or any multi-family community with 5 units or more to have a recycling program in place.
We offer blue 2 cubic yard, 3 cubic yard, 4 cubic yard and 6 cubic yard containers for recyclable materials. We do require boxes to be flattened. There will be no charge at this time for hauling recyclable material.
If these sizes do not meet your needs, please contact our Solid Waste office at (559) 684-4325 for more options for trash and/or recycling services.
