What’s New on Oakland Recycles?

We’ve made a few changes to make the site more readable and easier to navigate.

We’ve added a new Bulky Pickup Services page.  Bulky Pickup Services are available to all Oakland residents, including those in apartments and condos.  On the new page, you’ll find information for both residents and property managers, including how to schedule an appointment, and how to properly set out materials.

With the holiday season upon us, check out our Holiday Recycle Right Quiz and Guide.

And finally, businesses will find additional tools, information and resources on our updated Business page.
