Notes From the Field: Missed Christmas Tree Pickup?


Uh oh, you’ve missed Christmas Tree pickup!

Here’s what you need to do: If the tree is free of decorations, tinsel and stand, cut it up and place it in your green cart. If your tree has been flocked/spray painted, it cannot be composted and must be cut up and placed in your trash cart. Trees can also be taken to any San Joaquin County Landfill facility.

As a reminder, Christmas trees are collected in the City of Stockton between the weeks of Dec 26 – Jan 15 each season.

Notes From the Field: Street Parking Can Prevent Trash Pickup


Park the wrong way and your carts might not get serviced!

We ask our residents to keep courts and bulb-out residential courts and streets clear of cars for the trash/recycle/green waste trucks on service day. Carts need to be placed against the curb, not behind or in front of vehicles.

Please do not park perpendicular to the curb. It causes your carts to be further into the middle of the street. The waste trucks will not be able to maneuver and may skip service. Please be considerate of your neighbors and park down the street if you have no more driveway room on trash service day so everyone’s carts will be serviced!
