Frequently Asked Questions
I just moved. How do I start trash and recycling service?
You do not need to call. Service is provided by the City of Grandview Heights for its residents. Please review rules and regulations for container requirements and review the map for scheduled pick up day.
Are trash and recycling collected on holidays?
If the Service Department observes a holiday Monday through Friday, trash and recycling will be collected the next business day.
How do I request bulk pickup?
Please call the Service Department and/or sit your items out on your regularly scheduled trash collection day at no cost. Additionally, the Service Department will hold their annual Spring Clean Up week immediately following the Great Garage Sale weekend for residents of Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff. We accept large items but do NOT accept construction debris, soil, or any items containing coolant (i.e. dehumidifiers).
