Recycling

View our list of recyclable materials and check back for updates. Our list changes as recycling technology improves. We offer weekly curbside pick-up of household commingled recyclables (blue cart) and organics waste (green cart) for all residential customers.

CONTAMINATION

Clean organics waste is a must. Our organics waste truck has a video camera to monitor organics waste container contents as it is emptied. Containers contaminated with trash will receive a service charge of $11.00 per incident. Repeat offenders will have containers removed.

MOTOR OIL

It’s easy, convenient and free. Call our office to schedule a pick-up of your used motor oil. We will provide you with a 15-quart capacity oil container and an oil filter bag.

BATTERIES AND ELECTRONIC WASTE

The San Luis Obispo Integrated Waste Management Authority (IWMA) has provided us with containers to accept your household batteries and electronic waste, which are located at our office. You can drop off your materials Monday–Friday, 8am–5pm.

Batteries in the landfill present many health and environmental risks. By recycling these products, we will be cutting down on the amount of natural resources needed to produce the never-ending supply of batteries that our society has come to depend on.

FLUORESCENT LAMP AND TUBE RECYCLING

The San Luis Obispo IWMA has provided us with containers to accept your household fluorescent lamps and tubes at our office. You can drop off your materials Monday–Friday, 8am–5pm.

For information about safely recycling or disposing of fluorescent lamps and tubes, visit the California Integrated Waste Management Board website, CalRecycle.CA.gov.

Extra Services

ADDITIONAL BAGS

Service levels are based on a level container (lids must be closed.) If you have more trash than will fit into your service container, you will be charged $3.60 for each extra box or bag in or around your container. Extra bags and boxes should not exceed 50 lbs.

RENT-A-BIN SERVICE

We offer 3- and 4-yard temporary bin service. You can order a bin any time you have a larger-than-normal volume of garbage to dispose of. These bins are great for home remodeling and construction projects. Learn More

IN-YARD SERVICE

If you have difficulty getting your container to the curb due to a disability, you can sign up for in-yard service. Your regular driver will come into your yard to retrieve your container, empty it, and then return it to your yard. In many cases we are able to offer this service at no additional charge. We do require a valid doctor’s note to receive this service for free, and you must be living at the service address. If you need in-yard service for any other reason, please contact our office for rates. Upon requesting in-yard service, a supervisor will perform a site visit to verify feasibility.

BULKY ITEMS

We can collect bulky items. Please call our office for an estimate. Bulky items include appliances, furniture, mattresses, any over-sized item that will not fit into your container. Read below for more information about our annual Clean-Up Week for bulky items.
