Few things, once they are used, are actually trash. Among such things are non-recyclable plastics and other complex materials that were not designed to be recycled.
It is illegal to put items such as electronics, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, pesticides, and other chemicals in the trash. When household hazardous wastes end up in a landfill, they can cause serious threats to humans, wildlife and the environment.
- Motor Oil: We offer a curbside pickup for motor oil and filters – call customer service to request an oil kit and you will be provided with a container and zip-lock filter bag. When filled, call customer service to request a pick up, and place oil and filters at the curb next (NOT IN) to your recycling cart for pickup. There are also many locations in Sonoma County that will accept motor oil and filters. Visit www.ZeroWasteSonoma.gov to find a location.
Electronics: Any Sonoma County transfer station will accept household electronics for recycling. Goodwill will also accept electronics, working or not. Please also visit www.ZeroWasteSonoma.gov for additional recycling options, as well as for community drop-off events.
There are several options for holiday tree recycling. Please remove all lights, tinsel, trim, ornaments and stands prior to recycling. Flocked trees are NOT accepted in the tree recycling programs but can be cut to fit in your trash bin or collected for an additional fee.
