Castro Valley tests biweekly trash pickup

May 17, 2016

Starting in June, Castro Valley will run a seven-month program to evaluate less than weekly trash pickup. Compost and recycling will be collected weekly, but trash will be collected less than weekly from approximately 800 homes in two neighborhoods. The less-than-weekly trash service program is voluntary. Results will be used to determine whether this model of trash collection service is sustainable and if the program garners participation.
