COMMERCIAL RECYCLABLES & ORGANICS SERVICE

Recycling is now mandatory in Alameda County. Click here for details.

Please take advantage of available programs for Recyclables and Organics. Doing so is great for the environment, good for business, and can help keep your monthly waste collection costs down. For program tips and details, review the Commercial Recycling Guide, posters, videos, newsletters and bill inserts posted on Publications & Resources page.

Upon request, Livermore Sanitation will conduct a recycling opportunity assessment, provide free training assistance, and distribute helpful collection container signage- all for no charge. Contact us to add/change service, order signage, schedule a recycling opportunity assessment, or set up a training.
