If you have extra garbage, recyclables or yard waste, please call the Solid Waste Division at (925) 516-6090 five days in advance of your regular pick up day to have the extra material collected.
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 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.
The garbage, recycling and yard waste carts belong to the City. If you are moving, call Utility Billing at (925) 516-5415 to cancel your service and schedule your last pick up day.
To have damaged carts repaired or replaced, call the Solid Waste Division at (925) 516-6090 or submit a Service Request.
Each cart has a unique ID number on the front. Check it to be sure you are bringing in your own cart from the curb.
