Regular household trash service is not provided by the city and must be arranged privately
All City of Kalamazoo residents can take advantage of bi-weekly curbside recycling at no additional cost. A 96-gallon cart will be delivered to your home and you just need to learn what can be recycled and place it out according to the schedule.
The City of Kalamazoo mails a newsletter about residential services to every household in the city twice per year. The View from the Curb has important information about residential services like recycling, bulk trash, leaf, and brush, programs. It also has news from the Public Services Department and other helpful information.
If you live in the City of Kalamazoo, you should receive the View from the Curb in the Mail around April and September. You can always find the current version here online too.
