Residential Trash
The Town of Gardnerville provides the refuse service for residents within the boundary of the town of Gardnerville. Residential trash is picked up on Wednesday and Thursday. The downtown area, Sunset Park, Carson Valley Estates, Arbor Gardens and Stodick Estates are all picked up on Wednesday. Chichester, the Ranch at Gardnerville and Kingslane are picked up on Thursday.

The residential rate for trash service is $58.00/qtr.

You can rent cleanup dumpsters at the rate of $25/per pickup

Greenwaste (lawn clippings, weeds, leaves, and small branches) is collected for the entire town on Tuesday. Trash and green waste must be out by 5:30 am the day of pickup or the night before. 

Trash cans should be placed six feet from any obstacles and it is recommended to have trash cans at least 1.5 feet from another trash can.  (Diagram of can placement)  Please bag your trash. You will reduce the occurrence of littering as the material is transferred from your can to the truck. Also, keep your cans clean. This will discourage disturbance by animals.

Recycling
We have started a trial recycling program with Douglas Disposal and the Town of Minden.  The test area in Gardnerville is the Ranch at Gardnerville and several streets in the Chichester development (Longfellow, Kimbles, Edlesborough, Grendon and a short portion of Chichester Drive).  That program started in February and runs through the end of July.  The recycling materials are transported  to Douglas  Disposal's sister company South Tahoe Refuse and is sorted in their Lake Tahoe facility.  At the end of the trial period Douglas Disposal will be evaluating all the information and deciding if it is feasible to institute a permanent recycling program in Douglas County.  Click on the link for more recycling information if you are in the test area.  Recycling Flyer
