The City of Yakima’s Refuse Division has switched to its summer hours due to COVID-19.

As a result, City crews will collect refuse from 6:00 am to 2:30 pm each weekday.
The City is asking that cans be out before 6:00 am and that garbage is bagged before being placed in can to prevent loose garbage from blowing away.

Since garbage collection is starting and ending earlier, the Refuse Division cannot respond to call back requests after 1:00 pm.
