Commercial Recycling & Organics

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 and can help keep your monthly waste collection service bill down. To review participation success stories from local businesses, read the newsletters posted on the 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. Please review our Commercial Recycling Guide for more information.


What goes in each of my collection containers?
