Stockton City Council approves the garbage rates and adjustments. The City's two franchised waste haulers – Republic Services and Waste Management – are authorized to charge the current garbage rates for all residential and commercial customers.
The City's contract with the waste haulers allows for an annual rate adjustment equal to 50% of the change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) over the previous one-year period.
Residential customers are billed monthly for garbage and recycling services, based on the size of garbage cart.
Commercial businesses are billed directly through their service providers. All billing questions should be directed to the appropriate service provider.
Discounts are available to residential customers for garbage collection services only. To qualify, the bill must be in the name of the qualifying customer and for the customer's primary residence.
If you are a senior (65 years of age or older), please contact Utility Billing Customer Service.
Seniors (65 and older) and residents who are permanently disabled and also below the median annual income of $35,483 per household may be eligible for an additional 10% discount.
