How is my trash bill paid?
Residents of Cathedral City pay for their garbage service with their property tax bill. The taxes paid to the County are based on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. The garbage portion of the tax bill is based on a calendar year from January 1 to December 31. New homeowners are billed individually by Burrtec Waste & Recycling Services until a new calendar year begins. A property tax bill received in September will include a portion for garbage service; however, that portion will be for January to December services for the UPCOMING calendar year. Residents will continue to receive bills directly from Burrtec Waste & Recycling Services through December.

Where do I place my trash cart during the week?
All trash and recycling carts should be stored away from the public view. Do not leave them in front or side yards except on your regular scheduled trash collection day.
What if I have more greenwaste than what fits inside my curbside green waste cart?
Cathedral City residents are allowed to drop-off up to 300 pounds of green waste per week at no charge at the Edom Hill Recycling and Transfer Station. Residents will be charged for amounts in excess of 300 pounds per week and commercial landscapers and gardeners will be charged for all green waste disposal.
What if I need extra carts?
Residents may obtain additional recycling carts at no additional charge. Upon request, an additional green waste cart is available at no charge; limit two free green waste carts per household. Beyond that, additional trash and green waste carts may be obtained for a nominal fee. Call Burrtec’s Customer Service Department for pricing information or to place your order.

Are there any restrictions that I should be aware of?
