Waste Management

1-888-960-0008 Customer Service

The City of Berlin contracts with Waste Management for residential trash and recycling services for the entire city. Each residence is allotted two carts, one 95-gallon for trash and one 65-gallon for recycling. Volumes are restricted to what can fit inside the carts with the lids closed.

Waste Management has recently switched to one pick-up day on Monday for all homes in the city. If there is a city holiday on Monday; the pick-up will be the following day.

Carts must be curbside by 7:00 a.m. This is a fully automated service so carts must be placed on the terrace area behind the curb at least three feet apart, as noted on the cans, the lids facing the street, and handles towards the dwelling.
