Give us your opinion on the future organics collection program!
The State passed legislation that requires cities to implement organics recycling programs to minimize methane emissions from landfills. One of the two residential organics collection program options will be implemented citywide on July 1, 2021 to comply with the State regulations:
Option 1 - Implementation of the split-cart food recycling program citywide (with one compartment for organics and one compartment for garbage) to all single-family and townhouse customers.
Option 2 - Maintain the existing garbage container for single-family and townhouse customers and deliver the contents to a mixed waste processing facility to recover food scraps and food soiled paper.
Please provide your feedback on these options by taking a short survey before November 22 at SantaClaraCA.gov/OpenCityHall. Your feedback will be included when the City Council considers this item in December 2019/January 2020.
