Our New Recycling Program!
Our Recycling Program has Expanded!
Sort, Roll and Go
Pleasanton has joined Alameda County cities in adopting a number of new recycling programs, including meeting a countywide waste diversion target of 75% by 2010. To meet this target, the Pleasanton City Council approved a new residential curbside recycling program that replaces the current blue bag program with a separate collection cart for recyclable materials.
For the new residential curbside recycling program to be effective, residents are asked to actively participate by sorting recyclable material at home. Since all material placed in the trash cart will be landfilled, your participation in the recycling program is key. Fortunately, it's easy to keep all recyclable material out of the trash cart.
Remember, sort, roll and go—it's easy!

Any person who discards or abandons or leaves in any place accessible to children any refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance, having a capacity of one and one-half cubic feet or more, which is no longer in use, and which has not had the door removed or the hinges and such portion of the latch mechanism removed to prevent latching or locking of the door, is guilty of a misdemeanor. Any owner, lessee, or manager who knowingly permits such a refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance to remain on premises under his control without having the door removed or the hinges and such portion of the latch mechanism removed to prevent latching or locking of the door, is guilty of a misdemeanor. Guilt of a violation of this section shall not, in itself, render one guilty of manslaughter, battery or other crime against a person who may suffer death or injury from entrapment in such a refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance.
The provisions of this section shall not apply to any vendor or seller of refrigerators, iceboxes, deep-freeze lockers, clothes dryers, washing machines, or other appliances, who keeps or stores them for sale purposes, if the vendor or seller takes reasonable precautions to effectively secure the door of any such refrigerator, icebox, deep-freeze locker, clothes dryer, washing machine, or other appliance so as to prevent entrance by children small enough to fit therein.
