Proud to Serve the Livermore Community
Recycling is Mandatory
Businesses and multi-family properties with
5 or more units must recycle.
• The Mandatory Recycling
Ordinance has been in
effect since July 1, 2012.
Following eco-friendly policies
and practices will show your
business is committed to
long-term sustainability.
1. Sort plastic waste properly;
• The Mandatory Organics
Recycling Ordinance
began July 1, 2014.
To be compliant, Livermore
businesses and multi-family
residential properties must
have Recyclables and Organics
collection service in place.
Your blue Recyclables
carts and bins are for bottles,
cans, papers, and boxes. Your
green Organics carts and bins
are for food scraps, food-soiled
paper products, grass and
yard trimmings.
5 Tips for
Program Success:
Styrofoam products,
plastic wrap, and
non-recyclable
packaging belong
in your Garbage cart or bin.
