Solid Waste Division

The Solid Waste Division manages the collection and disposal of garbage in Richland. The city also owns and operates the Horn Rapids Sanitary Landfill, located at 3102 Twin Bridges Road.

**Be sure to check here during inclement weather for current Solid Waste Collection delays, cancellations, or alternate schedules.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during these winter months.**


As we approach the winter months, Solid Waste Department would like to remind our residents the Green Yard Waste containers will run year-round, except during freezing temperatures.  Solid Waste makes every effort to continue this service, however, freezing temperatures do create an issue with debris freezing in the container and can cause the service to be cancelled until temperatures remain above freezing.  Another options for residents to dispose of their green yard waste is to take their green yard waste to the city landfill and dispose of it for free.  Residents can bag their green yard waste and place the bags at the curb on your regular scheduled collection day and the Collection driver will pick the bags up for a charge. 

We apologize for this inconvenience during the winter months.  For questions regarding your collection services, please contact Solid Waste Department at (509) 942-7700. 

The Collection Division provides service to residential and commercial customers. Curbside services include refuse, recycling, and yard waste collection.  Please click here for our resident 2018 Curbside Calendar.  Waste containers need to by at curbside by 6 a.m. on your scheduled service day.
