Recycle your waste our Recycling Center & Transfer Station
We accept household garbage, recyclables, yard waste, paper, wood, plastics, metals, cardboard, construction debris and much more! We have a large 17 acre facility, that has 16 acres dedicated to recycling. Mt. Diablo Recycling Center (adjacent to the Transfer Station) is the largest recycling center in the County. It is approximately 90,000 square feet! We are dedicated to continually discovering and developing new ways to recycle and reuse. One example of re-purposing is that when you bring tires to the Recycling Center & Transfer Station they are shredded, recycled and used for road base and playground equipment. Another example is that the carpet foam padding you drop off is recycled into new foam padding. We also give guided tours of our facility with an emphasis on education.
