Food Waste Services Coming in 2023

Please do NOT change your waste sorting habits until you have been contacted by Cal-Waste with an official program start date.

Food Waste Services Coming in 2023

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.

Handy Haulers

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).

Bulky Waste

The community of Woodbridge is provided an annual bulky waste collection at no additional cost.  The annual clean up happens every Spring unless otherwise noted.  Check out our newsletter for the most recent scheduled community cleanup.  Additional bulky waste collections are available for a fee.


What’s considered Bulky Waste? Furniture, carpet, mattresses, clothing, appliances, televisions, stereos, contained green waste (bag, box, or bin), computers and other electronic equipment. Each collection must not exceed 4 cubic yards, and any containers with loose items must not exceed 50 pounds. Large green waste, such as tree trunks or branches, cannot exceed 2 inches in diameter, 3 feet in length or 50 pounds.


Other San Joaquin County communities served by Cal-Waste include Clements, Farmington, Linden, Lockeford, Lodi, Morada, Stockton and Victor.
