My blue or green can was not emptied on pick up day.
There are a couple of reasons for a garbage can not being emptied.
- Cans need to have 3-4 feet of space around them to enable the clamps to pick them up. If your can was too close to a structure or vehicle we will not attempt a pickup.
If you set your garbage can out make sure that you have it out the night before pickup. Our driver starts early and will not swing back around to empty your can if it is put out after he has passed through.
Do not pile garbage around the can, or have long items sticking out of the can.
We might have missed you. If you can’t wait another week call 222-5667 to schedule a pickup.
Can I pause my garbage services?
See code Sec. 12-61 B. “The collection of solid waste is a service. The property owner pays for the availability and utilization of this service. The appropriate weekly minimum charge will be billed monthly regardless of whether the service is utilized. Sec. 12-61C. Excepted from charge shall be buildings unfit for use, buildings used exclusively for cold storage and vacant lots.”

For more information see the Green Can Collection web page.
I don't have a green can, how do I acquire one?
The City is no longer giving out green waste cans. The City provides Green Waste Collection for approximately 900 households in Livingston. When the service was implemented each 90-gallon green receptacle was meant to be shared by neighbors on each block. Currently, the cost to provide service to the 900 households is distributed between all residents and commercial businesses in Livingston. The City does not currently have a funding source, adequate labor, and equipment to provide the service Citywide. The City is evaluating a fee-based service for green waste collection. Until that is implemented your options are to bring your green waste to the Transfer Station and drop it off for free, or bag it and throw it in with your regular garbage.
Why do I have a recycling fee charge on my utility bill? I don't recycle.
Recycling of glass is provided to the citizens of Livingston at no charge and the City Commission found that this service is desired by and beneficial for the citizens of Livingston, and Livingston is the only municipality in the State of Montana that provides for the recycling of glass and the cost to the city of glass recycling is not covered by the current fees.
The City of Livingston operates solid waste services as an enterprise fund, i.e. that the cost of providing the services to the general public on a continuing basis is financed or recovered through user charges and are not supported by the general tax levy.
A recycling fee of $1/month for residential users and $2/month for commercial users will cover the cost of glass recycling.
The City Commission held a public hearing on July 16, 2019, at which time the public was invited to attend and comment on its intent to create a user recycling fee of $1/month for residential users and $2/month for commercial users to become effective for solid waste services starting July 2019, to be billed beginning on August 2019.
69-7-101 et sec. Montana Code Annotated (MCA), authorizes increases in utility rates when deemed necessary by the City Commission.
