Collection Hours and Days: 

Sanitation services are required for city residents for the safety and sanitation of the city. Garbage pickup is provided by the City of Sandpoint thru Waste Management for residents within the city limits.

Garbage and recycling containers must be out by 6:00 am on the scheduled pickup day.  Regular refuse is picked up weekly, whereas recycling is picked up every other week. When you sign up for services thru the City, you will be given your residence's assigned pickup day.

When a holiday falls on a regular collection day, pickup will be made one day later than usual, with Friday pickups being made on Saturday. If the holiday falls on a Sunday, garbage will be picked up as usual. The only holidays observed for purposes of garbage collection are:

  • New Years Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day


Blue 96-gallon recycling carts are provided to all city residents who wish to recycle. Recycling service is provided as a courtesy. There are two recycling pickup schedules within the city limits. Your home will either be picked up on the odd or even weeks of the year. To find out which schedule you are on or to acquire a pickup schedule, please contact Waste Management by visiting their website or contacting them directly at 208-263-2432.
