NOTICE - Refuse service transfers to Burrtec starting April 1, 2016

The City of San Bernardino recently awarded an exclusive franchise agreement to Burrtec Waste Industries (Burrtec) to provide trash and recycling services to all residents and businesses within the City. Effective Apr. 1, customers can expect to see Burrtec providing trash and recycling collection, street sweeping twice a month, right-of-way cleanup, and bulky item pickup services. Throughout the month of March, Burrtec will mail information to customers regarding available services and billing processes. This means the City of San Bernardino Municipal Water Department will no longer include a refuse charge in the water bill after April 1, 2016. Burrtec will bill customers directly for refuse services. 


  • Services will remain unchanged. This includes Residential City Clean-up Days.
  • Current barrels (residential) will be serviced on the same day of service at the same monthly rate. 
  • Holiday's observed: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day. When the holiday falls on a weekday, collections for the remainder of the week will be delayed by one day. There is no service interruption or delay when the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday.
