Residential Services

The City of Ontario offers refuse and recycling collection service to its residents. The City serves approximately 30,000 single-family homes and offers several residential programs. Among the programs offered are the roll-out services for elderly and disabled residents and bulky item pick-ups by appointment. You may also view the fees for solid waste services.

Please remember the following in order to allow the best possible service:
