Lying in the western tip of Contra Costa County, El Sobrante is a unique CDP (census-designated-place) offering residents a perfect mix between suburban and country life. In Spanish, the name 'El Sobrante' means 'surplus land' or 'remainder', a fitting title given how it came to be. Once Mexico gained independence from Spain, the Spanish colonists were given land grants. The land that would become El Sobrante was determined by the boundaries of several other land grants including San Antonio, San Pablo, El Pinole, and Acalanes. El Sobrante has plenty to offer a budding outdoorsman, being in close proximity to the San Pablo Reservoir and regional parks like Wildcat Canyon, Kennedy Grove and Point Pinole. (Source: Wikipedia)
In keeping with the policies of Contra Costa County, El Sobrante follows a three-bin system; blue for recyclables, green for organics and yard scraps, and brown for all other waste. The Richmond Sanitary Service division of Republic Services manages collection of all solid waste, green waste and recyclables. All questions regarding waste and recycling services can be answered by calling Contra Costa County's Recycling Hotline at 1-800-750-4096. (Source: Contra Costa County)
Like many other Bay Area cities, residents can dispose of special items like E-waste and hazardous materials, but require you to bring them to drop-off centers yourself. With E-waste, residents are limited to bringing 5 electronic items per visit. Used oil and filters can be collected from the curb, but you must call ahead to arrange a pickup and use a special recycling kit.
