Garbage & recycling rates have been set by Contra Costa
Residents have a choice of backyard or curbside garbage
service, available at different rates. The rate also depends
on the size of your garbage can. Collection is made once every
week. Customers should provide their own garbage cans.
The company provides 65 gallon containers for greenwaste and
for mixed glass/paper/cardboard/ plastic/aluminum/scrap metal
materials. Greenwaste is collected once a month. Other
recyclables are collected every other week.
Bills are sent to customers by mail tri-monthly. For 2012,
the charge for servicing a 35 gallon garbage can (curbside pickup) plus recycling service is $26.61 per month. Please
call the company for other rate information.
By County ordinance, all occupied properties are required
to have garbage & recycling collection. Those who avoid
service may find that the County can place service charges on
the property tax bill anyway. Please do the right thing and
keep our town clean by subscribing for garbage service.
- For illegal dumping on public right-of-ways, contact the County Public Works Department.
West County has a collection program to help Crockett
safely dispose of common household wastes that might
otherwise harm our environment. A drive-thru drop-off
center is located at 101 Pittsburg Avenue in Richmond.
There is no charge and no appointment needed! The facility
is open Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of every
month from 9am-4pm. Call 1-888-412-9277 for more information,
