New Food Waste Recycling Program Coming Soon!

Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery and the cities are working together to put all the pieces in place for this exciting new program.  We will keep all of our customers apprised of that schedule, but as of now, deployment is currently with our commercial customers, with residential and multi-family properties beginning 2023.

When in Doubt, Find Out!

Our Recycle Resource Tool helps you get your containers right.

Click on the magnifying glass 🔎
to the right and type in the item, and we will tell you what container to place it in. If we cannot collect an item, we will do our best to point you in the right direction. 

Search tip — Keep material look-up general. For example, rather than searching the number on the plastic item, try entering the item in its generic forms such as a soda bottle or milk jug. 

We provide 4 options for your weekly curbside garbage collection. Your curbside recycling and yard waste are picked up every other week.
