Pleasanton Residential Organics Cart

Each residential household is provided with a 95-gallon cart and a food scrap pail. Organic service is provided on a weekly basis. The Organics Recycling Program accepts all types of green waste including

  • grass and weed clippings
  • shrub and tree prunings
  • leaves
  • plants

The food scrap pail is provided as a convenience and is not necessary to participate in the program.
