Illegal Disposal Issues

The City of Ceres offers programs for proper disposal of certain special waste items and materials.  Twice per year, City of Ceres residential utility customers are provided Bulky Item pick-ups for oversized waste that does not fit in the regular garbage cart provided for weekly service.  The City also offers a seasonal Leaf and Limb collection for residential customers for curbside collection of garden and yard trimmings.  Customers utilizing either of these opportunities must adhere to the program guidelines.  FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN A VIOLATION FOR ILLEGAL DISPOSAL AND BE SUBJECT TO A PENALTY CITATION.
