Standard Service

Castle Rock Garbage Service

Our standard waste collection service for Cowlitz County and City of Castle Rock residents and businesses is a regularly scheduled garbage pick-up one day each week.  We offer 32-gallon, 60-gallon, and 90-gallon carts for residential customers.  Contact Waste Control at (360) 425-4302 to sign up for service and for a current fee schedule.

Please note:  Curbside recycling is currently not available to Cowlitz County or Castle Rock residents.  County and Castle Rock residents can use the free drop-off recycling sites located throughout the county or deliver recyclable materials directly to the transfer station facility.

On-Call Service

We offer on-call waste collection service for one pick-up per month with our smallest cart (32-gallon).  Customers must call Waste Control before 5:00 p.m. the day before they need a pick-up.  Contact Waste Control at (360) 425-4302 to sign up for service and for a current fee schedule.

General Information

Extras – Extras are additional waste “units,” up to 32-gallons, that are picked up during your regularly scheduled waste collection day.  Extra units include over-stuffed garbage carts whose lids do not close.  There is an additional $5.75 charge for extra units.

Special Pick-up – If you would like us to make an additional trip to your residence to collect extra bags, refuse, or cart(s), please call us at (360) 425-4302 for fee information and to schedule a pick-up.

Bag Small Items
– Please bag all loose items, such as Styrofoam peanuts, to limit garbage drift when our drivers dump the carts in the garbage trucks.  Shredded paper is recyclable and should be placed in the recycling carts.  If you dispose of shredded paper in the garbage, please place it in a bag.
