New HHW Drop-Off Facility to be Located at the El Cerrito Recycling Center

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 9:08 AM by Suzanne Iarla

In order to provide more convenience in the proper disposal of household hazardous waste (HHW) for West County residents, the West Contra Costa Integrated Waste Management Authority, commonly known as RecycleMore, will soon be opening a new HHW satellite drop-off facility at the El Cerrito Recycling Environmental Resource Center. The facility will be accepting material from West County Residents in Recyclemore’s territory one day per week, tentatively planned for every Wednesday. Operations and Environmental Services Division staff is working with RecycleMore to open the facility in early April. RecycleMore will contract with Republic Services, their current HHW facility operator, to staff and operate the El Cerrito HHW site. Development of the facility is funded through a grant to RecycleMore by CalRecycles. On-going operational costs are funded through a portion of the Integrated Waste Management fee paid by all ratepayers in RecycleMore territory.

For more information related to the projects listed above, please contact Maria Sanders, Operations and Environmental Services Manager or call 510-559-7684.
