Garbage Service


The City of Port Orchard contracts with Waste Management for commercial/residential garbage, recycling, and yard waste services.  Residents have weekly collection for garbage and every other week collection for recycling.

WM observes three annual holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day (Dec. 25), and New Year's Day (Jan. 1). All other holidays will not affect your collection schedule.

Weekday holidays will delay collection by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday customers will be collected on Friday and Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.

If residents have any issues with their solid waste service, or for general inquiries, they should contact Waste Management at www.wmnorthwest.com/portorchard/index.html

If your questions or concerns are not satisfactorily resolved through Waste Management, please contact the Washington Utilities and Trade Committee at https://www.utc.wa.gov/FileComplaint
