The On-call Collection program provides Sunnyvale residents in single family, duplex, triplex and mobile homes with an opportunity to have extra garbage and bulky items picked up curbside twice a year. You must make an appointment with the Utility Customer Service at (408) 730-7400 to schedule an appointment by 2 p.m. the day before your scheduled garbage service day. This program replaces the spring and fall curbside clean up events. Residents will still be able to bring extra garbage at No Charge to the SMaRT® Station during Extra Dumping weekends.
