Contaminated materials or overflow may be subject to an additional charge, or not collected. Looking for more information on how to set up a successful recycling system in your home? Visit wm.com/recycle right for step-by-step instructions, downloadable container labels and more. Recycle clean and dry bottles, cans, paper and cardboard.

Visit wm.com/recycleright for more information on recycling.

What belongs in Your Container
Beginning January 1, 2022, SB 1383 requires Californians to sort and separately collect food scraps, yard debris and food-soiled paper from trash and recycling. This means food scraps are no longer acceptable in your trash container. For more information on SB 1383, visit https://www.wm.com/us/en/sb1383. Acceptable items include standard household trash like chip bags, plastic bags, & textiles (donate if lightly used). Non-acceptable items include construction waste, auto parts, tires, household hazardous waste (paint, oil, household cleaners), medical or electronic waste and food scraps.
What is Contamination
Contamination occurs when non-acceptable items are placed in your cart. To avoid potential contamination charges or non-collection, and ensure your recyclables have a shot at becoming new products, it’s important that only the right items make their way.
