Recycling for Residents

Alameda County residents get high marks for their commitment to recycling, with some of the best recycling and composting rates in the country.

But there’s more work to be done. Right now, about 32 percent of what winds up in our landfills is readily recyclable or compostable.

Help us reach our countywide goal: By 2020, less than 10 percent of Alameda County’s trash will be readily recyclable or compostable.
