A free Cardboard Drop-off is located at 2300 Elkins Way (off of Sunset Road).
The gated drop-off area is open to the public 8am – 5pm Monday through Saturday. The site is intended to provide residents with a free, local option to drop-off large quantities of cardboard that might not otherwise fit in their recycling carts.
Cardboard boxes must be broken down flat and placed only in the bins, not on the ground.
Security cameras are in place to monitor the site.
If you have any questions about these services or would like to request residential or commercial services to help you manage your cardboard, please call our Solid Waste Division at 516-6090.
Schedule and extra pick up
If you have extra garbage or extra recyclables or yard waste, please call five days in advance of your regular pick-up day to have the extra material collected. To arrange for this service call the City's Solid Waste Division at (925) 516-6090 or submit a Service Request.
The lids on garbage, recycling and yard waste carts must be closed to prevent spillage. If the lids are open because of overfilling, the carts will not be serviced.
An extra fee applies if a truck must return to service an overfilled cart.
If overfilling is a constant occurrence, you may need to increase your level of service with a larger cart. call the City's Solid Waste Division at (925) 516-6090 or submit a Service Request to upgrade your service.
For items such as mattresses, water heaters or appliances that will not fit in your cart, call the Solide Waste Division at (925) 516-6090 or submit a service request to schedule an extra pickup. A fee will apply.
