You can count on Gilton to provide reliable, curbside collection of garbage (black car) and organic waste (green or gray car) at the same time once a week in our one-pass automated trucks.
Bertolotti Disposal provides weekly curbside garbage services to most of Stanislaus County and select areas in Modesto. The streets of the city of Modesto are swept once a month within 48 hours of collecting the ornaments from its large garden. If the garbage company or staff of the City of Modesto find contamination in your green can, your can will be labeled with a notice and you will not receive organic container service until you have removed the contamination and contacted the City. Each company has an exclusive service area as considered by Modesto City Council, so your garbage company is determined by the street you live on.
The City of Modesto contracts with Gilton Solid Waste Management and Bertolotti Disposal Service for all garbage collection and recycling services.
