Solid Waste Management & Recycling

The City of Riverbank contracts with Gilton Solid Waste Management, Inc. to provide refuse collection and disposal services for residential and commercial collection.  Commercial collections are contracted directly with Gilton Solid Waste Management, Inc.

All residential customers are serviced once per week and commercial bin customers are serviced from one (1) to six (6) times per week.

Collection services will not start before 6:00 a.m. or continue after 6:00 p.m.

Residential Service


The City has a 2-can collection system: 

  • The black can is for garbage and recyclables - recyclables should be co-mingled in a blue bag and then placed in the black can. 
  • The gray can is for yard waste and paper products only.  Small branches or trees (i.e. Christmas Trees) should be cut down to fit completely within the gray can.
Lids of both cans should close completely if at all possible. 

Programs

Recycling for all businesses and apartment communities / multifamily housing complexes is mandatory

Recycling Arrangements


Businesses that meet the threshold must arrange for recycling services.  A letter went out to the businesses and apartment complexes in Riverbank explaining the requirements along with a questionnaire and recycling information. View a copy of the letter and questionnaire
