Have a question about your current service? Contact your garbage and recycling company: Find their name and phone number on your outside garbage containers. If you have additional questions or concerns, call the City at 503-823-7202.

Setting up new service? Businesses can negotiate service level, frequency and cost; rates are not set by the City. Contracts are not required by the City. All permitted commercial haulers are required to offer recycling and food waste collection but may subcontract through another hauler. Find more tips for setting up service.
