West Marin

Services for Single Family Homes

Recology Sonoma Marin offers weekly garbage service to customers in West Marin, which includes Forest Knolls, San Geronimo, Inverness, Lagunitas, Olema, Pt. Reyes Station, Woodacre, Dillon Beach, Marshall, Nicasio, Tomales, and Muir Beach. Included in the fee for garbage service is weekly curbside recycling and yard waste collection on your regular garbage day.  Residents may choose from 20, 32, 64, or 96-gallon rolling garbage carts. The cost of your service is based on the size of your garbage cart. The smaller your garbage cart, the less cost. The blue cart is for recycling and the green cart is for yard waste.

Garbage collection begins early in the morning, so it is important that your cart be at the curb the night before to assure your collection is not missed. View information on cart placement.

Make Green & Blue Your “Go-To!”
The standard size for all recycling (blue) and compost (green) carts is 96 gallons. This is our largest cart! The reason for this is we want you to think diversion first! Everything you put in your garbage cart (gray) goes into the landfill. Clean and acceptable materials in your recycling and compost cart are diverted from the landfills and recycled into new materials or enriching compost.

Cart Sizes

The size of your cart depends on you and your family’s needs. Super recyclers or small families may be able to reduce their waste and subscribe to the 20 gallon service.

Please do not over-stuff or compact the cart, as all of the material may not be released into the truck. Note that can sizes are also available for commercial customers as well.
