Garbage & Recycling

Recycling symbol

Stockton has a comprehensive waste collection system designed to reduce the amount of trash sent to our landfills. However, no system is complete without active participants.

Residents and businesses play a vital role in making Stockton's waste collection system work by using their carts or bins to separate their recyclable materials, green waste/food waste and trash.

Please review the links on the left of this page. Each section contains information related to a particular type of customer.
