Types of Collection Services
Weekly residential curbside collection service is provided using three, 96-gallon, wheeled automated collection containers.
- The green container is only for the disposal of greenwaste and food waste.

- The blue container is only for recyclables.
*CONTAINERS MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE CURB ON THE SAME DAY THEY ARE EMPTIED.
Like other surrounding cities, the City of Exeter does not offer leaf pick up services. Leaves should be placed in your green waste container.
Annual Clean Up Events
The City of Exeter, in cooperation with Mid Valley Disposal, generally hosts two annual clean up events. The first event is held in the Spring and the second event is held in the Fall. Exeter residents living within the City limits are encouraged to take advantage of these low cost opportunities to get rid of unwanted items such as old couches, mattresses, appliances, green waste or other junk.
A driver’s license and current water bill will be required to verify residency as dumping privileges are reserved for residents living within the city limits who receive trash service. A $5.00 per load fee will be charged.
To expedite the unloading of vehicles, we ask that you separate metal, green waste, cardboard, newspaper, appliances, computers and other materials. Palm leaves are not considered green waste and must be dumped in the designated trash area. Cement, tires, paint, chemicals and asphalt will not be accepted. Each household is allowed two trips to the event.
Christmas Tree Drop-Off
The City of Exeter offers an annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program. You can drop off your tree at the City Corporation Yard located at 350 W. Firebaugh from December 26th through January 15th. NO NAILS, WOODEN OR METAL BASES; NO LIGHTS OR ORNAMENTS.
