Marin Sanitary Service provides a variety of cart and/or bins for the collection of garbage, or non-recyclable and non-compostable items. All items placed in designated garbage carts or bins will go directly to the landfill.
The size and number of garbage carts and/or bins a business uses varies, but what goes in these garbage receptacles remains the same: garbage only. Your garbage receptacle should be clearly marked and easy to identify.
Please help us in reaching Marin’s zero waste goals by making sure that what you put into your garbage belongs there and not in the recycling or compostables receptacles.
Visit our Commercial Services page to review the size and container options for commercial customers.
It can be difficult to know what material goes into what container, but it’s very important that we avoid contaminating our recycling or compostable streams.
When in doubt, use our handy “Where Does It Go, Joe?” online tool to find out what material goes where.
We provide compost and recycling opportunity assessments, diversion planning, training and posters to help your complex recycle successfully. Learn more by contacting a recycling coordinator at (415) 456-2601.
One of the most common issues we run into with commercial customers is overfilled receptacles. Please help us by doing your part in keeping your garbage inside the receptacle.
Fees apply for any extra bags of garbage next to, on top of, or overflowing from designated containers. Extra bags must be less than 60 pounds and 32 gallons in volume.
Missed collections must be reported within 48 hours of the service day. MSS will make every effort to return that same if the miss is reported by noon or the following day if the miss is reported after noon. Any misses reported after 48 hours will be subject to a fee for collection.
Contact us to report a missed collection. You may also call our office at (415) 456-2601.
