COVID-19 Update: In order to keep the public and our staff safe, CVSan has suspended container and sign donations until further notice. Please do not submit any Donation & Supply Request Forms during this time. Businesses may download and print signage located at the bottom of the Commercial and Business Organics & Recycling page. The Alameda County Waste Management Authority provides free indoor food scrap bins to businesses.

CVSan businesses can request indoor containers, signage, stickers, and accessories from CVSan at no charge.  Fill out a Donation and Supply Request Form found at the bottom of this page and send completed forms to contact@cvsan.org or fax to (510) 537-1312.

Businesses can print their own signs too! Return to the Commercial and Business Organics & Recycling page to download and print.

CVSan staff is able to provide tailored solutions to meet business needs available to help facilitate a range of supplies to help businesses reduce waste, including customized signs. Please email emmanuel@cvsan.org or call (510) 537-0757 ext. 102 for more information.

Container Set Up Recommendations

  1. Set up stations with recycling, organics, and garbage containers placed together.  Per AB 827, businesses that allow customers access must make recycling and organics containers accessible for customers to dispose of items purchased on-site.
  2. Place signage on walls at eye level and place stickers on containers so they are visible.
  3. Reduce the size of indoor garbage containers since most businesses produce less garbage than recycling and organics.
  4. Make recycling and organics disposal easy and convenient. Determine where you will need access to each type of container.
