What Does CVSan Have to Offer Events?
CVSan promotes the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot) to the entire community and events are a great place to promote and utilize the 4Rs and even save money while conserving resources. CVSan has a variety of key resources and expertise to help with event greening with the 4Rs. If you are ready to reduce the amount of waste your event creates, we are ready to help. Please contact 510-537-0757 ext. 112 to request free assistance.
What will be Collected and How?
CVSan offers recycling and organics (compost) collection services to events through its contract with Alameda County Industries (discounts and donations may be available). CVSan provides containers, signs, and bags to Castro Valley events, non-profits, businesses, and schools. Staff can assist with planning for the right containers and signage Please click here for an online Donation and Supply Request Form or here for the mail-in/fax version.
CVSan recommends “stations” by grouping a recycling, organics, and garbage container at every station. A container that’s alone becomes garbage, no matter what the sign says.
Is it Recycling? Is it Organics? To find out where all those materials go, please see the following sign options.
For free event signs that you can print on your own, please see the following links.

How Important is Event 4Rs Planning?
Whether it’s recycling stations, vendors, or volunteers, planning is important. CVSan and Alameda County Industries staff are available to perform a free site assessment at your event. Staff can guide you through the process, including your event’s potential to prevent waste, and any donations, loans or trainings you may need. Please contact 510-537-0757 ext. 112 to request free assistance.
