Trash & Recycling

The City of Derby provides franchised trash and recycling for all Derby residents through Waste Connections, Inc. Derby's rates continue to be lower than most in the Wichita area, and Derby residents also get more services for the money.

Route Updates
Trash and recycling routes are listed below.

As a way to save money, consider switching to a smaller trash cart. Customers may reduce their cart size once in 2023 at no cost. Other cart size changes will be $25. Contact Waste Connections to change cart sizes (838-4920, prompt "4"). 

Weekly residential garbage collection is performed Monday through Friday. 

Cart placement demonstrationBy 6 a.m. on your day of service, please set the appropriate carts within two feet of the curb and at least six feet away from cars, mailboxes or any other object or obstruction that would interfere with collection. Carts may be placed no earlier than 2 p.m. the day before scheduled collection and retrieved no later than 9 a.m. the day following collection.

Waste Connections observes the following holidays: New Year's Day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. During the weeks of these three holidays only, the day of the holiday and the pickup days following will run one day late. Trash will be collected on all other holidays, including Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day.


Annual Bulky Waste Coupons
Waste Connections offers two free annual bulky waste service options to residential customers. These are good for either two bulky items picked up at the curbside or one curbside bulky item and one pickup truck load of trash hauled by the customer to the Waste Connections transfer station. The fee to dispose of mattresses, box springs, and additional bulky items after two services are used will be $30 per item. Contact Waste Connections to schedule your bulky item curbside pickup.

To redeem a transfer station trip, contact Waste Connections to have your coupon mailed to you or pick one up at their office at 2745 N. Ohio in Wichita between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Take the coupon, along with your photo ID, to the transfer station at 4300 W. 37th St. N. to dispose of your pickup truck load of trash. These two free options are only for Derby residents who are active Waste Connections customers and are tracked on a calendar year cycle.
