Garbage Service
Since 1966, San Juan Sanitation has offered convenient, affordable curbside pickup of your garbage. We offer a variety of service levels to fit the needs of any household. We serve almost all roads and private drives in the county. We can provide you with curbside service for the same price or LESS than self-haul, and you can save the time, money, and bother of hauling your own garbage.
Collection is available on San Juan, Orcas, Lopez and Shaw Islands.
