Recology Mountain View specializes in resource recovery programs and provides recycling, yard trimming and garbage services to single-family and multi-family homes. With over 90 years of experience, Recology has the expertise to meet your needs.
Please set out your recycling, yard trimmings and garbage carts in the street no later than 6:00am on collection day. Place carts at least 18 inches apart in the street by the curb.
In order to keep our communities safe and clean, we all must pitch in to help recycle and reuse as much as possible. Recology Mountain View provides a convenient curbside recycling collection program to all residential customers.

Close the Loop - Buy Recycled!
There is another important step to recycling: buying products made with recycled content. When you purchase products with recycled content, manufacturers will continue to use recyclables in their products and will expand their use to other products.
Compare labels to find the product with the highest percentage of "post-consumer" recycled content. ("Post-consumer" is the material you recycle in your curbside bin.) Many products, such as greeting cards, tissue, toilet paper and paper towels, offer a variety of recycled-content choices. Aluminum cans almost always contain high post-consumer recycled content.
Instead of throwing that old coat or dress away, donate your unwanted household items to a charity or second-hand store.
Yard trimmings collection is provided to residential customers of Mountain View. Yard trimmings are used to produce rich compost that can be applied by local residents and farmers, rather than going to waste in a landfill.
|Acceptable Yard Trimmings Material|
Only place yard trimmings into your tan cart!

Electronic / Universal Waste
All materials should be placed inside of the carts. Do not place waste materials on top, or next to your garbage cart, as they will not be collected.
You may dispose of occasional excess garbage by purchasing a $5 Extra Bag Tag. This tag is good for one 32-gallon garbage bag. Attach the tag to the bag, and place the bag on the ground next to your garbage cart. The tag must be visible to the driver. Tags may be purchased at the Mountain View Recycle Center (935 Terra Bella Avenue).
