Business Trash & Recycling
Trash, recycling, and green waste pickup for businesses in Lakeport is provided by Lakeport Disposal Company. The City has a franchise agreement with Lakeport Disposal to provide these services.
Curbside pickup of garbage, recycling, and green waste is mandatory within the Lakeport City limits. See Lakeport Municpal Code Chapter 8.16 for more information.
In 2012 the State Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) adopted regulations requiring mandatory recycling for commercial facilities. Additional information can be found on the CalRecycle website.
See Lakeport Disposal's website for the current commercial rates for waste toters and larger bins. If you are planning a remodel or construction project, please click this link for information about obtaining a City of Lakeport Building Permit. Also, please be aware that most remodel and construction projects are subject to the waste diversion requirements that are a part of the State's CalGreen Building Standards Code.
Business owners are reminded to maintain the waste toters, place them out on collection day only, and to pull them in within 18 hours after they have been emptied. Toters and other trash & recycling receptacles are also required to be stored and screened from public view and not be visible from the sidewalk, streets, or roadways.
Fees for commercial waste collection are billed by the City as part of the monthly sewer and water utility bills.
