New! Organics Recycling

Effective January 1, 2022, SB 1383 will require residents and businesses to divert organics from the landfill in a state-wide effort to lower methane emissions. West Valley Collection & Recycling distributed kitchen pails to Los Gatos residents to collect food scraps throughout the week with ease. Kitchen pail waste should be emptied into your green waste bin along with yard waste on your collection day for servicing.
