The City of Oakland's Recycling Program
Recycling every day, at home, at work and at play, is an easy and rewarding practice. By adopting recycling and waste reduction habits, you can reduce pollution and fight climate change. Help Oakland recycle more by making a habit of recycling paper, cardboard, cans, bottles and batteries, and by eliminating wasteful habits. The Recycling Program oversees the garbage and recycling services, provided by Waste Management of Alameda County and California Waste Solutions, and works to ensure that recycling is widely available.
