Yakima Waste Systems is operating on normal collection schedule. However, due to the poor weather conditions we are only picking up on the main roads. We ask that if you live on a hill to please bring your can, cart or disposable bags to a spot that our driver can attempt to access. We appreciate your patience and ensure you we will do our very best to service your stop. If we are unable to service, extras equivalent to the service you are subscribed for will be allowed at no additional charge. Safety of our drivers, the public and your property is our #1 value.
Yakima Waste Systems provides convenient residential collection services for our customers. Our mission is to provide quality services and recycling programs to help our customers reduce, reuse, and recycle to keep our state and Yakima County in pristine condition.

Since yard waste is composted, no plastic bags are allowed in the container or for use to hold additional yard waste. Also, all bundled yard waste must be tied with natural materials – no wire or plastic allowed.
While electronics are not allowed in any Yakima Waste collection container, residents may drop off electronic items covered under E-Cycle Washington. These items are accepted free of charge whether they are functioning or not. To learn more call 1-800-Recycle or visit their online database.
