Materials

For safety, legal and environmental reasons, it is important for your business or organization to only place approved materials in each type of container. Some of the materials not allowed in any of our  containers include: hazardous waste, electronic waste, medical waste and explosives.

Organics

Starting January 1, 2019, California law requires any business, public entity or apartment building with five units or more that generates more than 4 cubic yards of solid waste per week must recycle organic waste. Please place all approved organic materials in the green organic waste containers without bagging it. This material will be converted into electricity and soil amendments.


Recycling

Businesses that generate more than 4 cubic yards of solid waste per week must recycle, and all multifamily complexes or apartment buildings with five units or more must have a recycling program. The local Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) determines what items they accept. Please click here to view and print off the Blue Recycling Container items.
