Organics, Recycling, and Trash

Whether you are a Mountain View business owner, property manager, or resident, we work with you to tailor recycling, organics, and landfill programs based on your needs.

Wondering what goes where?


Grass, leaves, and weeds can go in the residential organics carts. Beginning July 2017, residents with curbside cart service can place food scraps and soiled paper in the organics cart as well. Commercial customers can place all food scraps, soiled paper, and yard trimmings in the compost cart or bin.


Cardboard, paper, plastic bottles and tubs, glass, aluminum, and tin are accepted in the residential recycling carts as well as the commercial mixed recycling bins. Cardboard only recycling bins are also available to commercial and multi-family residential properties.


What is trash? Not much! Styrofoam, thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), latex gloves, pet waste, diapers, ceramics, broken glass to name a few.
