Ordinance 15-1 requires businesses located within the CCCSWA service area (includes Danville, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Walnut Creek and unincorporated central County areas including Alamo, Diablo and Blackhawk) to either subscribe to a basic level of recycling service or self-haul all recyclable materials to a CCCSWA-approved recycling center. Please download a copy of the Ordinance.
As part of your landfill / garbage service fee, recycling and organics (food waste or yard waste) services are available at no additional cost.
This means your business can divert more from the landfill and potentially save money by right-sizing your landfill services.
Recycling is single-stream (cardboard, metal, glass, paper and clean plastic, can all go in the same recycle container). For a complete list of acceptable recyclable materials, visit our Mandatory Recycling page.
We can provide dumpsters (from 1- to 8-cubic yards) or carts (64-gal or 96-gal) for recycling. Depending on the materials your business generates and the space available, we can provide a recommendation of size and service level.
