Stockton's service providers provide sturdy, easy-to-use wheeled carts for residents to use. The carts have an attached colored lid. These colored lids tell you what type of material to put in each cart.
Separating your recyclables from trash may seem like a time-consuming chore, but it does not need to be. Stockton's cart system is designed so that more items will go into the recycling cart than the trash cart.
Items such as plastic or glass bottles, newspapers, cardboard, and even small household appliances (i.e. hair dryers) can be placed in this cart.
The 60-gallon wheeled cart is serviced weekly when placed at curbside on your designated service day. Remember to print a detailed list of recycling examples for everyday use.
Green/Food Waste Cart
Green waste is another name for yard waste. It includes leaves, tree or shrub trimmings, grass clippings, and some indoor items such as unpotted plants. (Pots, if recyclable, may be placed in the recycling cart.)
Food waste is also placed in the green-lidded cart. The list of food waste examples is extensive and includes bread, dairy products, meat (including the bones), greasy pizza boxes just to name a few.
The 90-gallon wheeled cart is serviced weekly when placed at curbside on your designated service day. Remember to download a detailed list of green and food waste examples for everyday use.
Trash is all material that cannot be placed in either the Trash or Green/Food Waste cart. There are not too many items that are considered trash these days but there are a few things. They include ashes, pet waste and litter, or Stryofoam.
The 30-, 60- or 90-gallon wheeled cart is serviced weekly when placed at curbside on your designated service day. Remember to download a detailed list of trash examples for every day use.
