Proudly Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
When it comes to waste disposal, Alameda is a shining example of a job well done. I’ll explain, but first let’s clarify that this is specific to the city of Alameda. Alameda County is comprised of many great cities, but again, our focus here is the city of Alameda. So what have they done that is so outstanding?…. Read on.
Alameda is one of the very few cities to have banned styrofoam food containers. When you go to restaurants and get the food to go, so often it’s returned to you in a styrofoam container which is generally not recycled. Technically styrofoam is recyclable, but rarely does it ever actually make it anywhere but the local landfill or garbage dump.
The reason for this is because styrofoam doesn’t recycle well and the process of doing so is very difficult. For this reason most recycling companies don’t feel it’s worth taking on styrofoam recycling in their lineup. It’s simply inefficient and not worth the money or effort for the small percentage of reuse you’d actually get.
Alameda implemented this initiative in mid 2008 in an effort to reduce the quantity of waste going into local landfills. So far the program has been remarkably successful. Furthermore, Alameda has also implemented the three-bin system to make it easier for resident to easily identify proper waste disposal requirements. You may already be familiar, but if you’re not here’s a recap:
- The Blue Bin is for recyclables (glass, plastics, paper)
- The Green Bin is for compostables (yard clippings and organic waste)
- Trash, waste and others that don’t fit in the above three.
Special circumstances apply to the following:
- Batteries and Fluorescents
- Electronic Waste
- Household Hazardous
- Motor Oil
Be sure to call the city and learn how you can properly dispose of this trash to keep Alameda clean.
