Who We Are


Since 1976, StopWaste has been helping Alameda County’s businesses, residents, and schools waste less, recycle better, and use water, energy and other resources efficiently. We’re a public agency governed by the Alameda County Waste Management Authority, the Alameda County Source Reduction and Recycling Board, and the Energy Council. With local partners, we helped launch the green building movement in California and organized one of the first and largest food scrap collection programs in the country. Our work helps people make better decisions everyday about the products they buy, the resources they use, and the stuff they no longer use.
