City of Manteca Solid Waste Division leaf collection is now underway through Jan. 12.
The city’s leaf crew will be collecting the leaves on the day before regular street sweeping days, which occur every other week in residential areas. Residents can determine which day their area is swept by viewing the map at
All other garden trimmings such as grass clippings and tree prunings are not included in the leaf collection program. Place these items in the yard waste collection bin (green cart) or compost them in your backyard.
Leaves can be put in green carts but not leaves inside plastic bags. Leaves are sent to a compost operation. Plastic does not compost. If you have too many leaves and need to make a pile, do so in the street a foot from the gutter. Do not put plastic bags of leaves out at curbside as they will not be picked up.
uCHRISTMAS TREE PICK UP: Christmas trees will be picked up for no charge starting Dec. 26 through Jan. 12 on your normal trash collection day.
All trees must be free or ornaments, lights, and stands. Trees that are left out after Jan. 12 will be subject to a collection fee. Flocked trees are fine. The trees are taken to Harvest Power where they are chipped into compost.
uGIFT WRAPPING & SUCH: As for recycling wrapping paper in blue carts, it is fine to do so as long as it is not shiny paper. Also, ribbon cannot be recycled. The city is asking that all cardboard boxes be broken down before they are placed in blue carts or put out for recycling. Whole boxes are difficult to pack into trucks.
uHOLIDAY WEEK COLLECTION DAYS: Manteca is changing its garbage collection for the week of Dec. 24 and week of Jan. 1. Those who have garbage collection normally on Monday will not have it on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Instead the collection will be a day later on Tuesday, Dec. 26, and Tuesday, Jan. 2. All other normal collection days will be pushed back a day: Tuesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Thursday, Thursday to Friday, and Friday to Saturday.
