Your Carts

While you’re sorting your compost and recycling, we’re finding new ways to reuse your materials.  Whether you are a business owner, property manager, or resident, we work with you to tailor recycling, composting, and landfill programs based on your needs

TRASH
What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, broken glass to name a few. If you have extra garbage that don’t fit in your carts, give us a call to purchase Extra Bag Tags.

RecycleBin

RECYCLING
Paper, bottles, cans, and most plastics (no plastic bags!), aluminum, cardboard, and other rinsed materials may be tossed in your recycling cart.

LandfillBin

GREEN WASTE
Grass, weeds, branches, and plants go in the green waste bin. Please do not place plastic or compostable bags in the green bin. Each resident can set out up to 4-32 gallon carts every other week for collection. The green waste schedule is included in your annual brochure.


DROP OFF
accepted items at the Recology of the Coast Recycling Yard

Americans with Disabilities Act
Disabled residents (pursuant to Americans with Disabilities Act) who are unable to place their containers at the curb
have the option of placing their containers beside their home, visible from curbside.  Please let us know.


RATES & CONTAINERS

The size of your garbage cart determines your monthly collection rate – the less garbage you generate, the smaller your garbage cart and your bill. We offer 20, 32, and 64 gallon carts. Please contact us for detailed rate information.

Place containers at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your regular service day, and remove them from the curb no later than 6:00 p.m.

Lifeline Rates

Qualification depends on household size and total annual income.  If you use a 32 gallon garbage cart and satisfy the requirements for the PG&E CARE Program, you may qualify for the Life Line Low Income discount.
