Sanitation Manager, Logan Jacobson, and his crew are committed to providing convenient and affordable residential and commercial solid waste services to the citizens of West Fargo.

Sanitation & Recycling

Residential garbage curbside pick-up costs $17.50 a month. To ensure your garbage and recycling is picked up on your designated day, please have your receptacles out by 7 a.m. on your collection day.

Sanitation Zones Map for Collection Day

To determine your weekly collection day, find your location in 2022 Sanitation and Recycling Daily Collection Zones. The day of the week your address appears in is your collection day. The color your address appears in, green or gold, determines the weeks your recycling will also be collected based on the adjacent recycling schedule.

Building Material Curbside Collection Update

As of Sunday, Jan. 1, 2022, the City of West Fargo no longer collects building materials curbside.
