Q: What are the Canyonlands?
A: The Castro Valley Canyonlands is an area in Unincorporated Alameda County to the northeast, east, and southeast of Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan). To view a map, please click here.

Q: What is the Canyonlands Annexation?
A: The County of Alameda submitted an application to Alameda Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) on January 23, 2015, for the purpose of CVSan providing solid waste services only (not wastewater) within the Canyonlands area. On May 14, 2015, LAFCo conditionally approved the annexation. On July 9, 2015, LAFCo ordered the annexation. 

Generally, an annexation means to join together. The LAFCo action expands the CVSan boundary and sphere of influence for the provision of solid waste services (not wastewater). As an unincorporated area, other public services (ex. sheriff, fire protection, public works, library, etc.) are provided by the County of Alameda.

Q: Will sewer service be provided in the future?
A:  This annexation is for solid waste services only, not wastewater. If a property owner is interested in wastewater services, please contact LAFCo or the County of Alameda for more information about their policies and procedures.

Q: I don’t have a curb.  Where do I place my carts for collection?
A: Carts are to be placed where the curb would be in the absence of a curb, streetside on the main road. If you are unclear about the location for cart placement, please request a site visit by calling Alameda County Industries at (510) 483-1400.
