Garbage Service Information

In 2008, the City of Sparks negotiated and executed a franchise agreement for the collection and disposal of garbage within City limits. The franchise was amended in 2015 to include updates to the residential recycling program.  This franchise is specific to “garbage” as well as the residential curbside recycling program, and applies to all residential households as well as commercial and industrial businesses that generate “garbage.”

Specific rules regarding garbage collection can be found within the Sparks Municipal Code TITLE 7 as well as the executed Franchise Agreement and associated “Exhibit B” and “Exhibit C.” Current collection rates (“Exhibit A“) for residential and business accounts may be found here. (revised January 24th, 2022)

Questions or concerns regarding new service, changes to existing service or service problems should be directed to Waste Management at 775-329-8822 from 8AM – 5PM, Monday – Friday.  Additional online resources from Waste Management, specific to the City of Sparks franchise agreement may be found here.

The City of Sparks is available to assist with any questions concerning the Municipal Code requirements or the franchise agreement itself. These calls can be made to 775-353-2273 .
