Excess Leaves & Debris

If you have excess leaves and debris in your yard as a result of the recent storm condition, use your Organics (green/food waste) cart to collect leaves and small branches for removal on your next service day. Please do not overfill your cart. The lid must close to prevent collected materials from falling out of the cart during service.


Too much to fit in your Organics cart? Use a 35-gallon plastic bag for excess material, place an Extra Service sticker on each bag, and set bags next to your organics cart for collection on your next service day.


Extra pick-ups are also available at a per 90-gallon cart charge of $18.20 (on service day) or $46.88 (on non-service day). Contact your service provider directly to arrange for these special services. 


Report large branches or trees that have fallen and are blocking roadways or sidewalks, contact the City of Stockton Municipal Service Center.
