The Solid Waste Recycling Services Division is responsible for administering the City’s refuse collection contracts for single-family, residential customers and City-owned buildings, administering the City’s Source Reduction and Recycling (SRRE) Program, and providing technical assistance and outreach to increase awareness of waste reduction and recycling.

In June 1991, the City adopted its source Reduction and Recycling Element for the City General Plan in accordance with the Solid Waste Management Act of 1989 (AB 939). In accordance with AB 939, all communities in the State were required to reduce the solid waste stream going to landfills by 25 percent by 1995 and 50 percent by the year 2000. The City achieved a 84 percent waste diversion rate in 2006.
