Allied Waste Services of Santa Clara County

Keep Your Curbside Green by Recycling Yard Waste

Allied Waste Services now offers WEEKLY yard waste recycling at the curbside! This gives your household yet another opportunity to reduce the amount of trash you dispose of in addition to the new single-stream recycling program.

The yard waste recycling program is easy to use - just place all acceptable materials (see list below) into your green Allied Waste cart and place at the curbside by 4:00a.m. on your weekly collection day. Remember, when you recycle right you're not only saving valuable resources, you're also helping your City maintain state-mandated diversion rates.
