Trash Service

WASTE MANAGEMENT is the trash service company for River Plantation.  Pick up days are:

Tuesday – Regular trash pickup

Thursday – Recycling pickup

You can call 1-800-800-5804 with any questions/concerns.


“Back door” trash service is available to all RP property owners for a quarterly fee of $60.00.  “Back door” means that the “household trash” containers must be visible from and accessible from the driveway.  The collectors are not allowed to enter the garage, even if the door is open, or fenced areas.

“Household trash” is the trash created in the daily, normal operation of the household.  It does not include leaves, plant material, tree limbs, and construction materials such as bricks, rocks, fencing, drywall, lumber, or carpeting.

Leaves, plant material, and other refuse may be placed at the street line for pickup and must be in containers or trash bags.  Limbs and branches must be cut and bundles in lengths of 4 feet or less and placed at the street line.

Please help keep RP clean by placing trash for collection at the curb no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the evening before the Tuesday or Friday pickup and removing all empty trash containers from the street, yard or driveway by 10:00 p.m. on the day of collection.

There is not trash collection on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.  If one of these holidays falls on a scheduled collection day, trash will be collected on the next scheduled collection day.
