Solid Waste and Recycling

News Flash-Chico’s recycling services are not changing!

Some Chico residents recently received a flyer from Waste Management with a 2022 calendar stating that green waste and recycling collection will be every other week.

This flyer was sent in error and was intended for those Butte County residents who have always had every other week recycling services.  Please disregard this notice and continue to use your green waste and recycling containers each week. 


Street Sweeping & Leaf Collection

Every year, street sweeping helps keep our streets, storm drains, and waterways clean and safe by removing over 5,000 cubic yards of material from the roadway. Our leaf collection program collects and recycles all leaves for City residents during the fall and winter leaf pick-up season.


Street Trees

Chico is known as the “City of Trees,” with a robust urban forest history that began with John Bidwell. From how to care for your trees to what to do if you need one removed, we’ve got our Tree City USA covered.


Weather & Air Quality

On July 27, 2021, the City of Chico installed a Purple Air monitoring station and RainWise weather station that report real-time weather data from the downtown area.

The stations are installed on top of the Fred Davis Municipal Center (City Hall) and allow continuous monitoring of weather conditions during the fire season. This data helps residents make the best health choices when air pollution levels are at unsafe levels. This project was funded by the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) Community Air Protection (CAP) Support Grant.
