Highlights

 Green Waste Management Resource Guide

Need a place to take your green waste?  The Green Waste Management Resource Guide contains a list of locations that accept green waste.

 Beverage Container Recycling

Six billion bottles and cans go unrecycled every year. Choose refillable containers whenever you can, and ALWAYS recycle bottles and cans. Recycling beverage containers is a triple play, it keeps neighborhoods clean, fights global warming and put cash in your pocket! Click here for more information and to find recycling centers near you.

 Reduction of Waste from Single-Use Items and Expanded Polystyrene Products Ordinance

As of May 1, 2023, permanent food facilities who choose to use and distribute single-use foodware and accessories are to ensure they are compostable or recyclable. Retail establishments are also now prohibited from offering products made from expanded polystyrene (also known as Styrofoam®), such as coolers, packaging materials, single-use articles such as cups, plates, and similar items, and pool toys, unless the products are encased in a durable material. As of June 1, 2022, full-service restaurants have been required to serve ready-to-eat food with utensils specifically designed to be cleaned after each use and reused. Food facilities are to continue providing customers with single-use articles (such as straws, forks and spoons) only upon customer request or consent. And online platforms are to continue offering a way for customers to select single use foodware accessories they wish to be packaged with their food order. The ordinance applies to food facilities and retail establishments that are located within the County unincorporated area and County facilities as well as to online food-ordering businesses.
