Martinez Trash, Garbage and Waste Removal
There is a nearly unending list of attractive satellite cities within a short drive of Berkeley, Richmond, Oakland and beautiful San Francisco, and Martinez is one of the prettiest. Briones Regional Park and Mount Diablo lie just a glance away from town to the south, and the shimmering shores of Suisun Bay lap implacably at the northern fringe of Martinez, California. A family-sized city of just over 35,000 in the census of 2010, Martinez is well known in the region as one of Contra Costa County’s communities with the most historic architecture. Martinez’ namesake is Ygnacio Martinez, who owned the original land grant in the early 1800s.
Martinez Clean Water Program
& How You Can Help
One of the highlights of Martinez it’s waterfront location. This is a local point of beauty and pride and residents are committed to protecting the delta and keeping it clean. One of the key initiatives behind this effort has been the inception of the Contra Costa Clean Water Program. Reducing stormwater waste is one of the key elements in reducing local water pollution.
The first and arguably most important step is prevention. The top ten things you can do are:
- Never throw trash or anything into storm drains.
- Minimize use of pesticides and fertilizers.
- Car washes recycle water. Go there instead of washing your car in the street.
- Pick up dog poop and throw it in the trash. This seems small, but it’s huge!
- Simply throw your trash in the garbage. Litter is a serious pollutant.
- Throw your cigarette butts away; please don’t toss them into the gutter.
- Repair leaks your vehicles may have, such as oil or antifreeze.
- Consider a rain barrel to capture and reuse rain. Your garden will love the natural, chlorine free water!
- As an alternative to #8, you can redirect your downspouts back onto your yard or garden.
- Maintain clean and well-swept driveways.
Additionally you should consider supporting Green Businesses. You can view a list of local ones here. http://www.greenbusinessca.org/directory/search/

Proudly Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
Martinez is a central hub for much of what takes place in Contra Costa County and being such a center of business and commerce, as well as a highly populated city within Coco county, trash and waste management is a huge concern.
In an effort to keep Martinez residents aware of the rules and regulations regarding their garbage services, please read on.
All garbage and trash items must be on the curb in front of your home, and stacked together prior to 5:30am the night before your trash pick-up day. Items may not weigh more than 50lbs. or be more than 4 feet in width. Large car parts or furniture must be picked up by a private service. The city will not haul this.
Additionally, the city of Martinez will not dispose of your electronic waste, rocks/dirt/concrete, or hazardous waste including chemicals, paints and automotive fluids. Vegetation waste will be removed, but must be tied into compact and neat bundles and prepared ahead of time. Large or excessive vegetative waste (such as tree trunks) may require you employ a private waste removal or hauling service.
Oils such as car oil and cooking oil may be taken to Contra Costa’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Facility located at: 4797 Imhoff Place, Martinez, CA 94553 (800) 646-1431.
Waste removal is a vital service that every community relies on. We are fortunate enough to have a spectacular operation here in Martinez and it’s is essential that we make use of it.

Manage your garbage appropriately and let’s keep Martinez beautiful.
