Houses, Duplexes, & Triplexes

In Stockton, residents who live in a single-family home, duplex or triplex are supplied with "residential" waste collection services. These services are provided at a fixed rate and include recycling, street sweeping and an annual neighborhood cleanup program at no additional charge.

Stockton residents are provided with three wheeled carts - one for trash, one for recycling and one for green/food waste - all for one low monthly cost. Waste collection services are provided weekly on a day specified by your service provider.

At the start of a new service, residents will receive a "Starter Kit" containing: 

  1. Detailed information on what material can be placed in each cart;
  2. A set of twelve Extra Service stickers. Use these stickers when you have too much waste to fit into any of the carts;
  3. A list of services included in your monthly service charge; and,
  4. A list of special services available at a nominal fee.

If you have concerns about your service, including the quality of service, please try to resolve the problem or concern directly with your service provider. If you are still unsatisfied, please call us at 937-8831.
