Moraga Waste, Trash and Garbage Removal
Although the city of Moraga, California swallowed up its former Contra Costa County neighbors called Rheem, Moraga Town and Rheem Valley via incorporation, it is still a smallish burg, home to just over 16,000 residents during the 2010 census. Within the last ten years, however, Moraga came close to doubling its size. Moraga handily made the list of the nation’s 100 wealthiest places, even as long ago as the year 2000. Just a jaunt away from abundant state parks and wilderness areas, Moraga is only about ten minutes away by car from Oakland, and from there, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
Composting & Green Living
Many Moraga residents take special pride in their gardens and in the summer, many will grow fruits and vegetables. In today’s health-conscious world, we’re finding that what’s the healthiest for us, is often best for the world around us too. Composting highlights this fact by reducing waste (food waste is the #1 waste material put out by residential homes), eliminating the need for manure or chemical-based fertilizers, and producing a healthier and more nutritious garden.
Moraga Curbside (aka Republic Services) is Moraga’s waste management company but also puts on composting workshops for local residents and neighboring cities. If there is no workshop available, check with the Moraga Garden Center, who often puts on composting workshops to help introduce and orient composting newcomers to this very green way of living. Additionally, a great local resource is Marian Woodard, Co-founder and Co-Director, Rodgers Ranch Urban Farm & Teaching Gardens.

Proudly Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
Orinda and Moraga have recently enrolled in a program called Recyclebank. This trash recycling program encourages people to make the most of their garbage and waste by recycling it and earning points which can then be redeemed for cash value with local merchants. As a Moraga resident, I have been participating in this program and think it’s spectacular. Not only am I helping save the planet, but I’m saving a ton of money too, while at the same time benefiting local retailers. It’s a triple whammy!
Did you know that over 55 million tons of paper is recycled in America everyday. Think about it – Most of us are terrible at recycling. What this means it that there are hundreds of millions of tons of trash hauled away to dumps everyday. Trash that is FULL of recyclable paper, not to mention glass and plastics. Yes, 55 million tons is good, but we need to do much better.
Fortunately we are becoming more earth friendly and encouraging people to make better use of their waste. A Michigan company called DTE Energy actually buys peoples old energy-wasting refrigerators and recycles them.
Many other companies are doing similar things with old computer monitors. Remember when computer monitors took up half your desk? With the advent of flat panel, those old monitors are being junked and rather than just throwing them in the dump, they’re being recycled for the many valuable plastics, metals and other parts within them.
Even here in Moraga’s neighbor, San Francisco is a company called Sunset Scavengers who specialize in recycling and reusing construction debris and leftovers. What this company does is drastically reducing the tons of trash that is being dumped into landfills daily.
