Commercial Services

Does your business generate more than 4 cubic yards of trash a week or do you own/manage a multi-family property with five (5) or more units? If so, California law requires you have recycling (AB 341) service. And for businesses generating 4 cubic yards of organics a week, like a restaurant or grocery store, the law (AB 1826)requires green waste service as well.

Waste Management is here to help. We will evaluate your current trash generation to determine the size recycling and green waste container to provide. In many cases, you can reduce your costs by participating in recycling and green waste collection. Call 707-964-9172 to get started.

Based on your business needs, you may select from the following containers for trash and recyclables: 35, 64 and 96 gallon carts 1.5, 2, 3 and 4 cubic yard bins.

New: Compactor to help you collect more trash in a single container with less frequent pickup. Call 707-964-9172 to learn about all your services options.
