Trash & Recycling

Recycling & Waste Disposal


Waste Management of the Inland Empire is Menifee's franchise hauler for refuse, recycling, and green waste materials. Menifee residents are provided with 3 96-gallon carts: 1 for regular trash, 1 for commercial recyclables, and most residents are provided 1 for green waste. All trash, green waste, and recyclables are collected on one each week on the same service day. This makes it possible for residents to place their bins in front of their property once per week and reduces the amount of time bins are lining city roads. For those residents who do not currently have green waste bins, Waste Management is scheduled to deliver those to all Menifee residents throughout 2021. 

Waste Management of the Inland Empire can be reached at 800-423-9986 or you can visit their website at Waste Management – City of Menifee. The current fiscal year (FY 2020/21: July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021) Schedule of Rates (service fees) can be found here.

Legislation
Since 2012, the State of California has released three pieces of legislation that impact businesses (AB 341 and AB 1826) and residences (SB 1383) and require both traditional recycling and organic (compostable) recycling. The City of Menifee and Waste Management are here to help Menifee businesses and residences comply. More information concerning these Bills can be found on the left side of this screen by clicking on the hyperlinks for each.
