Like all cities in California, state law requires the City of Morgan Hill to divert 50 percent of its waste away from landfills. The goal of our solid waste management services program is to meet or exceed this diversion rate in order to protect the environment and public health and safety.
Recology South Valley is the franchised solid waste hauler for the City of Morgan Hill. The company can be reached at 408-842-3358 to start garbage/recycling service at your home or business, or if you require large debris boxes and roll-off bins for construction, demolition, or other large projects.
Residential garbage service in Morgan Hill includes the unlimited collection of garbage, recyclables, and organic waste. Garbage and organics are collected weekly and other recyclables are collected biweekly in containers provided by Recology.
If you want to know your service day, Recology posts a collection calendar, or if your garbage or recycling was not collected, contact Recology directly.
The City's Franchise Agreement is available to the public (PDF).
