Castro Valley is a census-designated place (CDP) in Alameda County, California, and the fifth most populous unincorporated area in the state. It has a population of 66,431 (2020 census). The town is bordered by Lake Chabot, San Leandro, and Hayward. As a do-it-yourself town, it has its own fire protection district and school district, but relies on the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol to provide police services. To date, all efforts to incorporate Castro Valley have been voted down by its residents.

Castro Valley Sanitary District contracts municipal solid waste collection, processing, and disposal services to Alameda County Industries.

Construction and Demolition Materials

When it comes to dealing with larger amounts of construction waste, Castro Valley residents have three choices, 1) haul the objects themselves to the Davis Street Transfer Station or an alternate designated site for recycling, 2) hire a recycler or junk hauler to transport them to the recycling site, or 3) pay a Per Pull charge and a Disposal/Processing Fee (charged per ton based on actual disposal costs) plus an administrative fee to have ACI collect the materials.


E-Waste, including 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 dropped off at a proper facility.

Landfill Ban in Alameda County

Alameda County law requires that all plant debris be separated from any garbage and recycled. For Castro Valley residents, that means that the following waste must be included in their green container:

  • Grass
  • Leaves
  • Shrubbery
  • Vines
