Recycling Services

The City of Rohnert Park contracts with Rohnert Park Disposal, Inc. to perform garbage pickup and recycling services to all residential, commercial and multi-family customers.

If you have questions or concerns about your recycling services, please contact Rohnert Park Disposal at (707) 586-2283.

Residential Recycling Services

These recycling program services are provided as part of your refuse collection services:

You can mix all of your recyclables together in one easy-to-handle rolling cart. No more separating recyclable materials! This means that cardboard, newspaper, junk mail, office paper, glass bottle, milk cartons and other recyclables can all be put in the same container. The hauler will sort the materials. Please be careful though to follow some easy mixed recycling guidelines.

You can recycle used oil curbside by special appointment. To recycle used motor oil, you will have to sign up in advance, and you are required to use a special container provided by the hauler. You also must call ahead for pickup. Contact Rohnert Park Disposal at (707) 586-2283 to participate.

Yard waste will be picked up every week. No more wondering which week to put it out!

Commercial Recycling Services

Recycling benefits business: it's good for your bottom line! By increasing the quantity of materials you recycle, you may be able to reduce your waste collection needs - as well as your waste disposal bill. Most of the waste generated by a typical business is recyclable. Often over 60% of an office building's refuse is paper or other recyclable fiber products. It also helps to reduce or reuse at every opportunity.

Rohnert Park Disposal's recycling services include:

Free recycling service for all commercial customers. Your refuse bill includes all recycling costs. You will be provided enough free recycling containers for you and your tenants to recycle 50% of all your waste. No extra charge for your recycling bins!

A single recycling container for all recyclable materials. Recycling is easier than ever. Businesses will now be able to put all recyclables - cardboard, paper, plastic, glass, aluminum, tin and bimetal cans - mixed together in one recycling container. No more employee time spent sorting recyclables.

A selection of different-sized bins and automated cans for recycling. Rohnert Park Disposal offers a variety of sizes of recycling containers to meet your needs and space requirements.

Optional free weekly yard waste collection. Rohnert Park Disposal will provide free yard waste collection upon request by businesses.

Planning and education assistance. Businesses will receive ample support to implement recycling programs.

Recycling training also will be provided to employees.
