Help Is Here! Make Organics Collection a Success at Your Building.

In Alameda County, nearly one third of what apartment and condominium residents send to landfills are organic materials (food scraps and food-soiled paper) that can be composted. Effective July 2014, multi-family properties in participating cities are required to provide collection service for these materials.

Subscribing to the proper collection services is the first step toward a successful organics program at your multi-family property. The Alameda County Waste Management Authority (ACWMA) is pleased to offer free support to help you set up organics collection service. A representative will meet you on-site to look at your existing garbage and recycling bins, provide recommendations for the right level of new organics service, and share next steps and advice to communicate about food scrap recycling with your tenants.
