Sanitation Department

Curbside sanitation services are provided by Republic Services under an agreement with the City of Josephine.

  • Regular trash pickup is every Wednesday.

This includes ordinary household wastes.

The City of Josephine also sponsors a citywide clean-up day for Josephine residents and water customers with trash service. The date will be indicated on your water bill once it is scheduled.

City dumpsters maintained at the sewer plant are available for use by city residents at a non-prorated charge, as follows:

      (a) Pickup truck or car – $30

      (b) Trailers up to 16′ in length – $60

      (c) Trailers over 16′ in length – $150

Residents may obtain a permit for use of the dumpsters upon presentation of a current water bill stub and payment of the required fee at City Hall. No batteries, building materials, paint, tires or appliances may be disposed of in a city dumpster.

Pick-up Day: Wednesday for all regular cart pick-up and Thursday for all dumpsters

  • Trash cart to be ready for pick-up at road edge by 7 a.m. each Wednesday
  • Trash to be in disposable plastic bags and tied
  • No large containers with loose trash
  • Brush to be cut into 4-foot lengths and stacked in easily manageable bundles
  • Pick-up may be done on a different day when a holiday is observed by Republic Services (July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day), but trash WILL be picked up every week
