Refuse Removal Services

Refuse / Recycling Service Program

North Canton residents can sign up for curbside garbage/recycling service at the Utility Billing Department at the North Canton City Hall.  Garbage service includes both refuse and recycling pickup each week.  Two bins (dark green for refuse, bright green for recycling) are provided to each resident or business signing up for garbage service.


Please have your refuse and recyclables curbside by 6 a.m. on your regular trash pickup day, approximately 3 feet away from your regular trash with the lid opening facing the street.
