Proper Trash Container Placement for Residents

The City of Cypress takes pride in its overall appearance of its neighborhoods and a one element to maintaining the aesthetics of residential neighborhoods is through the regulation of the placement of regular trash and recycle containers.

Residents are reminded that the Cypress Municipal Code states that residents should place their containers on streets or public right-of-ways no sooner than 6 p.m. on the day preceding the regularly scheduled collection and are required to remove their containers from the street or public right-of-ways before 6 a.m on the day following the regularly scheduled collection.

Residents should also be aware that containers shall be removed after collection to a location on the property that is completely screened from the public right-of-way. This includes, but is not limited to, placing containers behind a gate, fence, shrubs, or within a garage. If you are unable to store your containers behind your gate because the containers are too large to fit through the gate, you may consider replacing your 100-gallon container with a smaller 65-gallon version. If you would like to request a smaller trash or recycling container, please call the City’s trash hauler Briggeman Disposal at (800) 299-4898.

If you have any questions regarding trash containers, or recycling, please call the recycling coordinator at (714) 229-6680.
