Curbside Recycling Information

Lane County DOES NOT provide curbside garbage and recycling services.

Oregon Opportunity to Recycle laws require that cities with populations over 4,000 ensure that recycling services are provided to all curbside garbage customers.

In Lane County, some cities franchise with a single company (Coburg, Cottage Grove, Creswell, Springfield, Veneta), some cities issue licenses to more than one company (Eugene, Florence), others provide collection through a public works department (Junction City). View the full list of city, county, and state contacts.

Outside the city limits and inside the urban growth boundaries of these cities, Lane County is responsible for ensuring garbage companies are in compliance with these laws.

Cart Placement

Carts should be spaced at least three feet apart. Carts should be placed for collection no earlier than 7pm on the evening prior to collection day and removed by midnight on the day of collection. Carts should be placed into the street with the wheels against the curb, but shouldn't be placed where they block sidewalks or bike lanes.
