Event Recycling

What Does CVSan Have to Offer Events?

Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) promotes the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot) to the entire community, and when the 4Rs are utilized at events, we help conserve resources and save money. CVSan staff can provide expertise on event greening. As well, a variety of supplies to help with event greening are available at CVSan. If you are ready to reduce the amount of waste your event creates, we are ready to help. Please call (510) 537-0757 ext. 112 to request free assistance.

What will be Collected and How?

CVSan offers recycling and organics (compost) collection services at events through its contract with Alameda County Industries (discounts and donations may be available). Containers, signs, and bags are available for Castro Valley events, non-profits, businesses, and schools. CVSan staff can assist with planning for the right containers and signage. Please click here for a Donation and Supply Request Form.

CVSan recommends setting up “stations” at events by grouping together a recycling, organics, and garbage container at every station. A single container becomes garbage, no matter what the sign says.

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 for your event. Staff can guide you through the process, including your event’s potential to prevent waste, and any donations, loans or training to help you implement the 4Rs at your event. Please call (510) 537-0757 ext. 112 to request free assistance.
