Oakland Recycles - Your Recycling Team

Forever Blue Recycle Carts Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

A small number of Oaklanders have received a new “forever blue” recycle cart. Over time, the forever blue carts and bins will be rolled out across Oakland.  This new blue look aligns with a statewide requirement establishing blue as the color of recycle containers across California.  If you still have a gray recycle cart or bin, please keep using it!  You will receive communication regarding a larger citywide roll out of forever blue recycle carts and bins in the future.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and we look forward to our continued partnership!
