Many times toters cannot be emptied because there are prohibited items in the container. Please do not place wood, televisions, sheetrock, concrete, carpet or microwaves (appliances) or vegetation in the toter.
Also, vehicles must be moved away from the toter to allow for collection. Often the garbage trucks cannot access the toter due to items obstructing access.
Note that we can only collect official City of Port Arthur toters. Others will not be picked up by City services.

Garbage toters should be placed at the street before 7 am on your designated garbage pick up day.
Call 409-983-8511 to reschedule pick up. Circumstances will determine whether a driver can make it by the same day.
All toters should be placed with the handle facing the residence. This allows for the proper placement of the toter for pick up by the truck.
