Trash Pickup

The City of Rensselaer Sanitation Department picks up trash in the City of Rensselaer only. The trash must be set out before 7:30am on your scheduled pick-up day. Each residence is picked up once per week and a sticker system is utilized. The sticker system was created to only charge a household for the actual amount of trash they set out. Trash stickers can be purchased at City Hall in sheets of five (5) for $15.00 per sheet or individualy at $3.00 per sticker. You can also purchase trash stickers for $3.00 per sticker or a sheet of five (5) for $15.00 per sheet at the following locations; Strack & Van Til; Save-A-Lot and Family Express. The Sanitation Department requires a blue sticker per trash can or bag. We do suggest to each household to purchase a 30 gallon trash container with a lid and place their trash bags inside (weight limited to 40 pounds per container) and place one blue sticker on the handle of the trash can.  Each residence must use a trash sticker or face possible fines and no trash pick up. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the City of Rensselaer Sanitation Department at 866-7833.
