Metro Waste Authority oversees collection of garbage, yard waste, and recycling for the City of Pleasant Hill.

Through this program management, Metro Waste Authority is a one-stop shop for all questions related to safe, smart disposal, collection questions, or issues.

If you have a question or concern, simply call 515.244.0021.

Metro Waste Authority has managed these programs on behalf of cities for many years. As with all contracts, there is an expiration date and terms must be renewed. A new agreement for collection of garbage, yard waste, and recycling goes into effect July 1, 2022.

What does this mean for you? 

Set out by 6 AM

  • New haulers mean new routes, so your cart may be collected at a different time of day. Haulers can collect anytime between 6 AM - 6 PM.

Collection Day

  • All collection occurs on Wednesday. 
  • Recycling is collected bi-weekly based on the color of your cart lid. 


  • The new monthly rate will be $15.95. This includes collection of garbage weekly and 
     recycling bi-weekly.
  • For yard waste disposal, residents purchase bags, stickers, or subscribe to a cart to cover the cost of curbside collection for yard waste. Collection will occur on the same day as garbage and yard waste so it must be at the curb by 6 AM.
