Disposal Tips

Recycle & Donate
Save on disposal costs by recycling or donating everything that you can. Then recycle - many items such as appliances and other metal items, clothing, furniture, etc. are recyclable. Even carpet pads are recyclable at some facilities! Be sure to separate your recyclables from the trash.

Load Your Vehicle Securely
Load your vehicle and cover the load securely to prevent spillage or litter from your vehicle.

Cover Your Load

Whenever you haul, be sure to cover your load! This will reduce litter on Santa Clara County streets and highways. Did you know that failure to cover your load can lead to a $1,000 fine for littering (see requirements in California Vehicle Code Section 23114)!
