Residential Trash Collection

​​​Residential trash is picked up weekly in brown carts. Residents may choose which size trash collection cart they want to use (small, medium or large). Price is based upon size of brown cart.  Carts are placed in the gutter, 3 feet from other carts and 5 feet from any parked vehicles.  Carts are to be put out the night before or by 5:00 a.m. on their scheduled pick up date.        

Carts must be removed from curb after pick up. 

Failure to do so may result in a court appearance and/or fines.

In accordance with the Manteca Municipal code, Section 13.02.160 Refuse and recycling containers-Location. Paragraph D: Refuse and recycling containers shall not be placed at the curb prior to sundown on the day prior to collection. All containers shall be removed from curb within such collection day.


The City offers "stickers" for those times when you might have extra garbage. You are allowed 3 stickers each calendar year. If you have an extra bag of garbage, put a sticker on it and place it out next to your brown cart on your regular collection day and it will be picked up at no extra charge. Stickers are available for pick up at the Finance Department located at 1001 W. Center Street, Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  You may also pick up extra garbage stickers at the Solid Waste office located at 210 E. Wetmore Street, between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Stickers are normally available beginning in late December for the next calendar year.


The City offers a "Community Clean-Up" bin. This is a 2-cubic-yard bin that you can have delivered to your home, free of charge, for 24 hours. You can fill it with everyday household garbage. No concrete, dirt, auto parts or hazardous materials are allowed. This is available to you once a year.  Call (209) 456-8440 for more information.  To ensure a bin is available,  we recommend calling in advance. This service gets booked quickly and without advanced booking, may not be available on the day that you need it.
