The city of Orinda is a family-oriented community in a semi-rural valley on the east side of the Oakland/Berkeley hills in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its 17,600 residents enjoy a serene and bucolic setting, surrounded by trees and the natural wonders of Tilden Park, San Pablo Reservoir, Briones Open Space and the Lafayette Reservoir. The city was named friendliest city in California and second in America by Forbes and Nextdoor.com (among cities with populations between 5,500 and 150,000).
Orinda contracts municipal solid waste collection, processing, and disposal services to Allied Waste. Certain objects cannot be left for weekly garbage or recycling pick-up, such as electrical appliances, mattresses and other furniture, hazardous waste, construction debris, and E-Waste.
E-Waste includes: computer monitors, televisions and other electronic equipment should NOT be disposed of with garbage, recycling, or organics. The city recommends that working E-Waste be sold or donated and that non-working E-Waste be taken to the monthly E-Waste event.
Electronic waste is a loosely defined term referring to electronics that are at the end of their useful life (i.e. broken) or no longer wanted. Almost anything with a cord a wall plug is classified as e-waste, including cords and wires themselves.
Household appliances include microwaves, refrigerators, stoves & washing machines. E-waste and household appliances are illegal to discard in the household trash or recycling because they contain hazardous materials like lead, arsenic and mercury. You must take these items to state-licensed facilities.
