Commercial Recycling

The City of Manteca provides commercial recycling to businesses with bins ranging in size from 2 cubic yards to 6 cubic yards. We can arrange pick-up service once a week, or up to five times per week, depending on your needs. This is done at NO CHARGE to the business operator, provided that the recycling remains clean and free of contamination.

Recycling bins are for CO-MINGLED RECYCLING.

The following items are acceptable in business recycling bins:

Businesses with large amounts of wood and metal may contact our office to have drop-box service for this recycling.


Any business that would like to recycle their office paper may arrange to have toter service at their office. There is no charge for this service. Toters need to be put out (just like at home) by 5:00 am every Tuesday morning for pick-up. Call 456-8440 to be placed on the pick-up schedule.

As of July 1, 2012-Any Commercial or Public entity that generates more than 4 cubic yards of solid waste per week is required, by California State Law, to also recycle.

AB341 is the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law that was created in hopes of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts and by expanding opportunities for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California. The Law requires any business that generates 4cyds or more of commercial solid waste per week; or a multi-family complex of 5 units or more to reuse, reduce, recycle, compost or otherwise divert materials from the landfill.    More information on AB341 can be found at:

The City of Manteca offers a variety of recycling services.  Call 209-456-8440 for more information.
