Please do NOT change your waste sorting habits until you have been contacted by Cal-Waste with an official program start date.
The State of California has implemented its new organic waste recycling requirements, in accordance with the statewide mandate, Senate Bill 1383.
Residential organic waste recycling (food scraps and yard waste) is anticipated to begin at the beginning of 2023 for most Cal-Waste residential customers.
Currently, there are no changes to residential collection and how you should sort your waste at your place of residence. When your city, county, or special district begins the collection of food waste and yard waste in a comingled container, Cal-Waste will provide complete information regarding the details of the new program. Residential customers of Cal-Waste can expect to change their waste sorting habits so that any and all food scraps no longer go into their Trash Cart. Instead the food scraps will be placed in the Green Waste Cart.
Cal-Waste offers 10- to 40-cubic yard Debris Boxes for projects of all sizes. View our available sizes by visiting our Debris Boxes page, then call our knowledgeable Customer Service representative to determine your specific needs! Call (209) 369-6887.
Conveniently sized at 3.5 cubic yards or 5 cubic yards capacity, our Handy Haulers are the perfect solution when you have a lot more trash or yard debris than will fit in a normal weekly pickup. One low price includes delivery, removal, and disposal of almost anything you can fit inside (price varies on size). Galt residents receive one free 3.5 cubic yard Handy Hauler service per year.
An example of an acceptable Large Item pick up is a loveseat, side chair and a dishwasher. In most cases, three large items will make up 3.5 cubic yards. Download the Cal-Waste Recycles Right Mobile App to schedule large item pickups from your phone.
Unacceptable items are not limited to this list, so please call Customer Service at (209) 369-6887 with any questions. All unacceptable items will be left behind.
