When Mexico declared its independence from Spain in 1823. The latter became part of a large land-grant given to a former soldier and renamed Rancho San Pablo (by a Mission Delores Priest, who sought to protect that point of the day, by naming it after St. Paul). Juan Bautista Alvarado, the first native born governor of the State of California, lived in San Pablo.

What to Do in San Pablo

Visitors can enjoy a taste of the town’s history at either the Alvarado Adobe Museum, which is a replica of Governor Alvarado’s home, or the Blume House Museum, a farmhouse built in 1905, and then subsequently relocated in 1979. After the annexation of California by the United States, San Pablo began to transition into a large-scale agricultural region. The main street of the town, also known as San Pablo Avenue, became part of a stage route from San Francisco to Oakland to Sacramento. The stagecoach along with a strain of American migrant ranchers, which included a large number of new immigrants, began to diversify the population of the area. And after World War II, the sleepy town grew from 2000 to 25,000, in the community became a suburb.

Green Initiatives in San Pablo

The former “All American City Award” (for civic improvement projects) winner in 2014, the city of San Pablo supports Zero Waste, Spare The Air, and other environmental initiatives, and is dedicated to protecting and conserving natural resources. The city encourages recycling, reducing waste, and safely disposing of hazardous waste.

Waste collection is managed by Republic Services Waste and Recycling, but not all objects are suitable for collection. For example, all Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and matresses must be dropped off at the Richmond HHW facility (located at 101 Pittsburg Ave.). larger, bulkier items like furniture may be picked up as part of the complementary Curbside Bulky Item Collection, but residents are limited to only one per year.
