COVID-19 Related Changes to Extra Bags

Richland’s Solid Waste Collections efforts include the Extra Bags Curbside program, whereby residents place extra bags at the curb and crews manually load them for disposal. In an effort to reduce exposure to staff, we ask that until further notice, residents instead re-load their cans after they’ve been emptied and request a secondary pickup for the usual fee of $3 for each additional full container. To schedule a secondary pickup, please click on Click Here For Service Requests. Residents may also call (509) 942-7700.

To further reduce exposure to our staff, please bag and secure your household trash.

The Horn Rapids Landfill will remain open for business, Monday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., if self-disposal is necessary.
