Garbage Containers

Turlock Scavenger provides three roll out containers (carts) to each resident of Turlock:
  • A charcoal grey 95 gallon cart for garbage
  • A blue 95 gallon cart for co-mingled recyclables, and
  • A green 95 gallon container for organic (including garden) waste
Multiple unit residences receive one green 95 gallon organic refuse container for the complex.

These containers are picked up once per week on assigned routes.

Citizens are encouraged to embrace the recycling habit, and actively participate in helping the City to meet its waste diversion goals.
