Solid Waste/Trash

Regular Pick-up
Trash collection in the City of Seat Pleasant is handled by Bates Trucking.  Residents should place their refuse containers at the front curb by 6:30 a.m on Monday and Thursday. Refuse will be collected between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The contractor will empty containers and return them to your curbside. The homeowner is responsible for storing and cleaning the containers. Neither the City of Seat Pleasant nor Bates Trucking will be responsible for items not intended for collection that are placed next to refuse containers or for the removal of any containers other than regulation containers.

When placing out to be picked up please:
  • Please put the required covered trash containers between the curb and sidewalk, or by the street, after dark the night before or prior to 7:00 a.m. on the correct collection day
  • Please ensure that the cover of the trash container is tightly closed
  • Please ensure that the trash containers are accessible so that nothing will hinder or impede trash collection by Bates employees
