Rates for Solid Waste & Recycling Collection

On November 5, 2019, the City Council approved a 10-year franchise agreement. Republic Services and Waste Management are the contracted service providers that serve the residents of the City of Stockton with weekly curbside collection of garbage, recyclables and organics (green waste). The companies also provide street sweeping services within the City of Stockton. 


Service rates are adjusted annually. The rate adjustment is equal to 100% of the change in the Consumer Price Index for the 12-month period ending in April. The rates for all residential and commercial customers are effective January 1.



Residential customers are billed monthly for services, based on garbage cart size.

  • Please see below for the different cart sizes for trash service.
  • Residential customers can receive an additional 90-gallon Organic (Green & Food Waste) Cart for free.
  • Use the City's About Your Address feature to see which company handles your service.
