Garbage Collection

Residential Garbage Collection service is billed monthly on a combined utility bill with water, sewer, and stormwater services.  The bill is issued by your water service provider. 

Residential Garbage Collection Services are activated and stopped through your water service provider when you open or close your utility account.  

Garbage service is mandatory at any occupied residence and billed as long as the water account is open.  Services are provided by two private companies in the City of Stockton:


Customers with GREEN-bodied carts are services by Waste Management.
