The City is working on updates to our Waste Prevention programs to address regulations related to California’s Short-Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) Reduction Strategy (SB1383).  Updates and information on this effort can be found here.

In partnership with our Franchised Hauler, Republic Services the city offers many programs to help our businesses and residents reduce their waste. While subscribing to garbage and recycling service is mandatory for all, please keep in mind the even more important R’s: Reducing your waste by not generating it, Reusing items, and Composting (Rot). Check out the information below to learn more about the ways you can help us to reduce waste in Antioch!
