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.
