Water Sewer & Garbage Service
Municipal Services manages a variety of areas which are vital in maintaining a healthy, safe, clean, and thriving community. The department consists of four divisions: Regulatory Affairs, Water Quality Control, Utility Maintenance and Utility Billing. The department is staffed with 76 full-time employees and 10 part-time employees, who implement, deliver, operate, and maintain the City's infrastructure systems and facilities.

The City of Turlock contracts with Turlock Scavenger for the collection and disposal of solid waste. Turlock Scavenger provides three roll out containers to each resident of Turlock. A charcoal grey 32 gallon container for garbage, a blue 68 gallon container for co-mingled recyclables, and a green 95 gallon container for organic waste. Multiple unit residences receive one green 95 gallon garden refuse container for the complex. These containers are picked up once per week on assigned routes. Citizens are encouraged to embrace the "recycling habit" and actively participate in helping the City to meet its waste diversion goals.

#WaterWiseWednesday meets #StormwaterAwarenessWeek!When washing your car at home, do not allow the washwater to flow across driveways or sidewalks and into gutters and catch basins. That soapy water flows directly into our waterways, #untreated!

#WaterWiseWednesday meets #StormwaterAwarenessWeek!💦🚗

#WaterWiseWednesday meets #StormwaterAwarenessWeek! Did you know a standard garden hose can use 10 gallons of water per minute or more? This means you can easily use 100 gallons of water with only a 10 minute carwash. When you wash your car at home, use buckets and sponges instead of a hose. Use the hose only to rinse the soap off. Make sure you have an automatic shut off nozzle attached to the hose. Park the car on the lawn so that any water that runs off goes into your l...andscape, not the gutter and into the storm drain (which leads to our waterways, untreated!). The best place to wash your car is always at a full or self-service car wash facility that recycles the washwater. If your car must be washed at your residence, prevent the runoff of any polluted water by washing over a lawn or gravel area that will allow the washwater to infiltrate into the soil . Do not allow the washwater to flow across driveways or sidewalks and into gutters and catch basins. Use biodegradable soaps and as little water as possible.

Some of these Best Management Practices include: 1. Sweeping up grass clippings and leaves before they enter the storm drain system and dispose of them in your green cart; nutrients can leach from yard waste and contaminate our streams. 2. Keeping fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides off concrete and paved areas to prevent water washing the chemicals into the storm drain. 3. Rinsing paint brushes in the sink rather than outside on the sidewalk or in the street. ... 4. Always use a drip pan when changing the oil in your vehicle. 5. Picking up after your pets to avoid wastes from being washed into the storm drain. #stormwaterawarenessweek #turlock #onlyraindownthedrain https://cityofturlock.org/€/stormwaterpollutionprevention.a€
