Garbage/Recycling Information
The City of Modesto no longer has a curbside recycling program. For some residents this creates a problem of what to do with recyclable materials. Many residents also have questions about where and how to properly dispose of waste that cannot be put into the landfills or recycled, such as: e-waste, automotive fluids, batteries, etc. Below are links and information that Modesto residents and residents of the surrounding areas can use to properly recycle and dispose of items, reducing the amount of waste we place in our landfills.

Black Cans/Green Cans
Modesto has a two-can disposal/recycling program. The black can is for household waste and non-organic items such as plastic packaging, diapers, animal waste, etc. You can find more information about the black can here.

The green can/organic waste recycling program includes the collection of most residential organic materials, including yard waste, food waste, paper and cardboard products. You can find more information about the green can here.
