  • Automated carts should be placed at least 2 feet away from obstructions such as parked cars, trees, telephone poles and mailboxes. 
  • Please be careful not to place carts in areas of traffic, such as bike lanes, in order to avoid blocking paths of travel.
*NOT APPLICABLE IN ALL AREAS. Currently in Borrego Springs and the communities of Ramona, including Country Estates, and some parts of Julian.

Automated Trash Collection COMING SOON to Julian (not applicable to all parts of Julian)!

In an effort to efficiently service trash and recycling collection throughout your neighborhood, RDS will be implementing a new and convenient automated trash collection service this month and your regular collection day will be changing!

On April 11th, residential customers will receive a new gray automated trash cart for household waste and your new collection day will begin the following week on a new service day.



Residents can request additional trash carts for a nominal fee.

CLICK HERE to request additional carts through RDS's Contact Us form.

Collection Day Set-Out

Place automated carts in your designated collection area (in front of the residence or in the alley) on the street with the wheels against the curb or on the edge of the roadway. Arrows on the lid should point toward the street. Avoid placing carts next to obstructions, such as parked cars, utility poles, etc. Please be careful not to place carts in areas of traffic, such as bike lanes, in order to avoid blocking paths of travel.

When setting out waste and recycling carts for collection, always leave enough space so your postal carrier can access your mail box.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding placement of your waste or recycling container, please call (760) 789-0516 and a customer service representative will be happy to assist you.


Residential service consists of weekly collection of household trash, yard waste and recyclables from your home and yard. It is important to note that there are two separate trucks that will perform this service for you. Please call our office for limits in your area.

Trash Containers

Customers are responsible for providing their own trash containers. You may use hard plastic or heavy rubber cans, galvanized metal cans or plastic bags. Can size should be no larger than 32 gallons and should not weigh more than 50 lbs. when full. Plastic trash bags should not exceed 25 lbs. when full.
