The Zero Waste Sonoma office is closed, and Agency staff are working from home. We will be checking email and voicemail, but please be patient if there are delays. Please check this page or our Agency's social media; staff will post updates as information is released.
Hauling companies operating in Sonoma County will continue to provide residential and commercial curbside pickup services. Please see below for changes.
Sonoma County Refuse Disposal Sites remain open, including self-haul. Please check back here or the Sonoma County Department of Transportation and Public Works website for updates.
The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility located at Central Disposal Site and managed by Zero Waste Sonoma will remain open for residents on Thursdays and Fridays ONLY. The HHW Facility will be closed on Saturdays through any shelter-in-place orders.
HHW services for businesses will be temporarily unavailable until April 7.
Whether you are a restaurant, grocery store, or residential household, please consider donating edible food. Multiple organizations across the County are available for drop-off or pick-up donations.
Food recovery volunteers are needed. Many existing volunteers are stepping back because they are older and/or are afflicted with conditions that may make them more susceptible to COVID-19. If you would like to volunteer and help distribute food to vulnerable populations during this time, please contact a food recovery organization near you.
If you must discard food, please remember to place it in your green cart or dumpster for composting instead of the trash.
As with any emergency, it is important to heed precautions and stay informed. If you are not already subscribed, we strongly recommend signing up for Nixle and SoCo Alerts through the County's emergency notification systems.
