Residential Services

All refuse, green waste, and recycling containers should be placed for collection prior to 6:00 A.M. of your regular collection day to avoid being missed. Collection can occur at any time between 6:00 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. or later, and can change from week to week.

Three different trucks will pass your residence to collect refuse, yard waste, and recycling waste throughout the day. A missed collection must be reported to our office within 24 hours of your regular collection day to receive a make-up collection. Credits are not issued for missed collections that are not reported.

Containers should be placed curbside at least 3 feet from any obstacle, such as a parked car or fence, and at least 1 foot from other containers.

Trash containers should be removed from streets as soon as possible after the containers have been collected, and in any event no later than ten o’clock.

SB 1383 -RESIDENTIAL ORGANIC FOOD WASTE 

WHY ORGANIC RECYCLING?

Landfills are the third-largest source of methane in California. Organic waste emits 20% of the state’s methane; a climate super pollutant up to 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. By participating in the City’s organic drop-off program, you are part of the solution to protect the environment and future generations.

ORGANIC FOOD WASTE -24- Hour Drop-off Program Guidelines

Participation Guidelines: All food waste should be placed in a gallon-sized, clear, rigid (thicker) plastic bag. Gallon size zip lock bags work best.

Food waste acceptable items: Any items that come from food or are the result of the preparation of a food item. Rinds, shells (shellfish), hulls, bones, meat, fruit, bread, nuts, produce, anything that would have been edible.

Unacceptable items: Items labeled compostable e.g. bags, plates, table wear, toothbrushes, and cups. No, packaging, paper, coffee filters, tea bags, yard waste, glass, plastic, straws, napkins, plates, table wear, plastic film, manure, pet waste, animal waste, gloves, textiles, dirt, rocks, cartons, cardboard, bin board, or refuse of any kind.

How do I participate?

STEP 1

Separate your food waste and place it in a non-compostable gallon size, clear, rigid (thicker) plastic bag. Gallon size zip lock bags work best.

STEP 2

Locate a drop-off site listed above.

If you live in a Multi-Family community ask your site manager or HOA, you may have a collection bin on site. Multi-family properties can also use the 24-hour drop-off sites. 

STEP 3

Place your bagged food waste in a designated drop-off bin.

Tip: Keep meat and dairy scraps in your freezer and add them to your bag on the day you plan to drop off your waste.
