The Zero Waste Department, ensures that residential and commercial customers receive quality organics, recycling, and garbage services at reasonable rates from the District’s contractor. The Department ensures compliance with Federal, State and local regulations including a mandate to reduce materials sent to landfills, along with a requirement to appropriately discard hazardous materials, which helps to ensure proper long-term management of our resources and the environment. In addition, CVSan has a goal of Zero Waste (90%+ diversion) by the year 2029.  The Zero Waste Department works to keep the community informed on legislation, new programs and the best recycling practices via public outreach.
