StopWaste is a public agency responsible for reducing the waste stream in Alameda County. We are governed jointly by three Boards, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority, the Alameda County Source Reduction and Recycling Board, and the Energy Council.
The Alameda County Waste Management Authority is a public joint-powers agency comprised of the County of Alameda, each of the fourteen cities within the county, and two sanitary districts that provide refuse collection services.
The Authority manages a long-range program for development of solid waste facilities as well as many programs in the areas of source reduction and recycling, market development, technical assistance and public education. Read More »
