Our Junk hauling truck in Walnut Creek
Walnut Creek, crowned by the majestic Mount Diablo, is located in the perpetually sunny valley of central Contra Costa County, approximately 16 miles east of San Francisco. The city is abundantly verdant winter and spring due to its extensive swatches of open space. (Walnut Creek owns more open space per capita than any other community in the state of California, making it ideal for horseback riding and hiking.) In addition to its many natural wonders, the city also boasts several distinguished cultural centers, such as the California Symphony, Clay Arts Guild, and The Lesher Center for the Arts.
Waste Management Guidelines for Walnut Creek
With lots of room to spread out, the city’s 65,000+ residents also enjoy a tony downtown retail and restaurant district with over 122 fine dining establishments and other social venues. To keep up appearances, Walnut Creek has clear trash removal guidelines for residences, businesses, and schools.
For residents, burgundy containers are provided for recyclables, for yard clippings, green containers, and for non-recyclable waste, blue carts are provided, with each available in various sizes so that customers can adjust (“downsize”, for example) to their particular needs. Rates vary according to the size of a customer’s carts. For an additional fee, VWM can provide a larger waste cart for customers whose recyclables exceed the normal amount a green cart will hold.
In California about 50% of landfilled materials come from the commercial sector, according to CalRecycle, so in an effort to reduce that amount, and as a part of a larger statewide effort, Walnut Creek businesses are required to recycle.
For Walnut Creek schools, in addition to the 3R’s of (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic), there are the 4Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot. Much of what schools throw out is recyclable. 47 of the city’s K-12 schools are engaged in the 4Rs “Wastebuster” program, which provides field trips, curriculum, presentations, composting workshops and many more exciting activities to help kids learn how to be better environmental stewards.
