Recycling Frequently Asked Questions

Fremont

Why is recycling important?

Recycling conserves natural resources like trees and water and also saves energy. It is important in helping Fremont meet county and state-mandated goals for reducing waste disposed in local landfills.

What is Fremont's recycling goal?

Alameda County and Fremont City Council established a goal of 75 percent waste diversion by 2010.

Where can I get a recycling container for my unit?

The City of Fremont provides personal recycling containers to apartment/condo residents to increase waste diversion (recycling) from multi-family dwellings. The container provides a convenient way to store and carry recyclable materials to your building's recycling collection area. Get a container from your property manager or contact Republic Services.

What should I put into recycling containers?

Recycling containers are for newspaper, mixed paper, cardboard, and containers (plastic, glass, metal, and aluminum). ALL clean, dry recyclables can go together; no sorting is necessary.

What about space? Where do I store the bag/basket?

These containers were designed for indoor storage in units with small kitchen cabinets, closets and storage areas.

What happens if people put the wrong items in recycling containers?

This is called "contamination." It is important that only recyclable materials are placed in recycling carts and bins, because contaminated recycling loads become trash. Garbage and other non-recyclable items affect the processing and manufacturing of recyclables, resulting in inferior or unusable products. Please refer to the Apartment/Condominium Program Guide and the pictures on the recycling carts for instructions.

How do I recycle cardboard and used motor oil?

Cardboard should be flattened, broken down into 3' x 3' pieces, and set beside the building's recycling cart/bin.

There are several convenient drop-off locations in Fremont for used motor oil. Call the City's Environmental Services Division at 510-494-4570 or check www.fremont.gov/environment for a current list.
Note: Some communities have restrictions that prevent residents from changing motor oil on the property.

What if all the outdoor recycling carts are full?

If this happens on a regular basis, your property manager can call Republic Services to request additional pick-ups or more carts. Please do not overfill containers, as this prevents Republic Services from servicing them.

Union City

Why is recycling important?

Recycling conserves natural resources like trees and water and also saves energy. It is important in helping Union City meet county and state-mandated goals for reducing waste disposed in local landfills.

What is Union City's recycling goal?
