The charming city of Alameda, located in Alameda County, California, is renowned for its considerable collection of Victorian Homes and Manses. Alameda Island, or "The Island" as the locals refer to it, connects to Oakland by way of two tunnels and a bridge and looks serenely out onto the San Francisco Bay. The city has a total population of 73,812. Originally a resort town, with a substantial sand beach and ideal weather year-round, the West Coast equivalent of Coney Island, Neptune Beach, was built in Alameda in 1917. The Snow Cone and the Popsicle were co-created by the owners of Neptune Beach and first sold there. Today, due to its ideal location, it attracts kite and wind surfers at the city's Crown Beach, as well as those who enjoy the pleasures of beachcombing without the gusty winds found up and down the coast.

The City of Alameda takes landfill reduction very seriously and is committed to a suite of waste management programs for residents, businesses and local government. This has resulted in a commendable 68% diversion rate. Alameda uses a three-bin system for garbage, organics and recycling. Alameda is also one of the few cities in the country that collects food waste and used motor oil at the curbside. In addition, Styrofoam is banned throughout the community.
The City's solid waste, green waste, recycling, and food waste and organics collection are managed by Waste Management. For more information, call the City's Public Works Department (510) 747-7930 or email Public Works. The city does not consider E-Waste or Household Hazardous Waste to be garbage or acceptable for curbside pickup, but instead requires residents to self-haul (or have someone else haul their E-Waste or Household Hazardous Waste) to one of the county's facilities. Alameda residents of single-family homes and multiplex buildings (with 4 units or less) may schedule an annual on-call cleanup to discard overflow waste and recyclable materials. This service is available at no charge, once per 12-month period, if you are eligible.
