Trash and Recycling
Waste Management handles most areas for resident’s garbage in the City of Santa Clarita. This includes the hauling, disposal and the recycling. As of 2022 it costs over $75 every three months, but they seem to increase that cost a few bucks each year. They actually do a pretty good job of it and the crews are a friendly bunch. In the adjacent photo, a home child care provider was taking the kids for a walk doing their favorite activity, following the trash truck. The workers were kind enough to take a moment from their day to pose for a pic.
We understand Burrtec is also handling some areas so you may need to confirm this information. Their contact information is:

What About Cable, Internet, Transportation and the Dreaded DMV?
Television Cable and High Speed Internet Services
There are two companies who currently have agreements with the city and provide cable service for Santa Clarita residents. These are AT&T and Spectrum/Time Warner. There are also satellite type options such as the Dish Network and Direct TV, but there is no existing prearranged city contract in place. We have personal experience with DirecTV, Time Warmer and AT&T and they each have their own pros and cons. None of them are perfect!
AT&T: (800) 288-2020
Time Warner Cable: Now also called Spectrum.
Spectrum – 1-844-452-8952
Time Warner – 888-TWCABLE or 888-892-2253.
DirecTV: Now Owned by AT&T: (855) 448-3473
Dish Network: (833) 974-0292
Some residents like the satellite services of either the Dish Network or the DirecTV, so it’s probably worth investigating. Our feeling is, it’s getting too expensive to purchase these services and there are a number of less expensive online options available. Also, many are now skipping cable or satellite TV completely, just getting internet service and just streaming services such as Peacock, Netflix, Hulu and a bunch more.
There are plenty of buses that will take you throughout SCV and to the neighboring cities. Here’s the link for more information. There’s even a trolley for special events, regular shopping trips, excursions to Magic Mountain and such.
