Oakland, California, is a major West Coast port city and the busiest port for San Francisco and all of Northern California. Oakland's 390,724 residents enjoy the balmy Mediterranean climate (averaging 260 sunny days each year), a vibrant cultural life, and world-class sporting events at the Oracle Arena (home to the Oakland Raiders and the Golden State Warriors). Oakland also boasts some seminal Northern California landmarks, such as the Paramount and Fox Theaters, Dunsmuir-Hellman Estate, and was once home to Jack London (his cabin still resides in Jack London Square), and offers the nature enthusiast mile upon mile of parks and trails through the East Bay Regional Parks.

As evident by the many ambitious "green city" initiatives, Oakland has a strong legacy of environmental leadership, and, in fact, is continually listed among the top cities in the United States for sustainability practices. With that in mind, the city offers a wide array of services for garbage and recycling collection. For multi-family buildings (5-9 units), residents can avail themselves of the two-container program:

  • Recycling - weekly bottles, cans, jars, paper and cardboard recycling
  • Garbage - weekly garbage, film plastics, plastic bags and other non-recyclable materials

The Multi-Family residential program also includes:

  • Optional Yard Trimmings with Food Scraps Recycling
  • Optional Bulky Pickup to the first 1,100 callers (for single family home residents and 2-4 unit building occupants).

Oakland's Residential Recycling & Garbage Program for Single-Family Homes and 2-4 Unit Apartment Buildings receive weekly yard trimmings and food scraps recycling. The Single Family residential program also includes:

  • Used motor oil and oil filters - weekly collection for recycling
  • Bulky pickup and recycling (household appliances and other bulky items)
  • Holiday tree recycling each January

For residents in larger buildings, the Bulky Pickup service is not available, but may be available for a fee from the city's Waste Management. Currently plant debris has been banned from landfills in Alameda County, necessitating residents and businesses dispose of them through the appropriate organics collection.

If you live in Oakland or the surrounding area, and you have bulk items, extra garbage, construction debris, unwanted electronics, discarded furniture, or other items not suitable for standard trash or recycling pick-up by the city, contact Fast Haul as we provide the following services::
