Garbage & Recycling

Recycling symbol

The City provides 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 trecyclable materials, green waste/food waste, and trash.

Please use the links on the left of this page for a specific type of customer.
