One of the oldest towns in California, Antioch, which was founded in 1850 and incorporated in 1872, is a city located in Contra Costa County, along the San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta, and a suburb of San Francisco and Oakland. The city’s population of 115,360 (per the 2020 census) appreciates the area’s Mediterranean climate, veering from semi-arid (hot and dry) summers, to mild and wet winters. But it’s not the climate that has caused the Western Burrowing Owls to have made the city one of their remaining hubs for nesting, but the convergence of a set of ideal conditions: flat, grassy lands and people who are willing to fight to protect them.

Antioch has become a champion of the owl (and of California’s natural wildlife), which is listed as a Species of Special Concern by the California Department of Fish and Game due to a dramatic decline in population (60% from the 1980s to the early 1990’s, and a roughly 8% decline each subsequent year). In 1980, Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge became the first national wildlife refuge in the U.S. established for protecting endangered plants and insects including the Contra Costa wallflower.
Like many other Bay Area cities, Antioch utilizes Republic Services for its Garbage, Recycling, and Trash collection. Since Republic Services cannot collect Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), it must be dropped off at the Delta Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility in Pittsburg.
Bulky items (furniture, scrap metal, e-waste, etc.) which are not permitted in garbage bins, can be picked up as part of the complementary on-call cleanup program, but residents are limited to 2 annually.
If you live in the Antioch area, and you have a urgent need to remove an old TV, large appliances, mini-refrigerator, unwanted furniture (such as children’s pools, gym or sporting equipment, or old tires, car parts, and other items not suitable for standard trash or recycling pick-up), contact Fast Haul as we provide the following services:
