The City of Berkeley is home to over 112,500 residents and encompasses an area of 17.7 square miles. Berkeley is also home to the University of California, Berkeley. UC Berkeley (or Cal) is the oldest and most prestigious member of the University of California system, and is widely regarded as the #1 public university in all of the country.

More People Means More Trash!
A GROWING JUNK PROBLEM IN BERKELEY
With so many students in and out of the city’s short-term housing a regular basis, waste output statistics are eye-opening. According to Dump & Run of Massachusetts, the “average college student produces 640 pounds of solid waste each year, including 500 disposable cups and 320 pounds of paper.” Multiply that figure by 38,000 students and you’re talking about over 12,000 tons of waste every year, much of it in the form of old couches, mini-refrigerators, busted futons, and other large/bulky items. In short, Berkeley’s trash removal demands are high.

What city trash collectors will/won’t take
The city of Berkeley’s trash collection service offers weekly curbside service to residents using rolling containers up to 96 gallons in size. However, bulky waste pick-up only occurs once per year, and bed frames, appliances, doors, old sinks and toilets will not be picked up at any other time.
