Collection Services for Waste and Recycling
The Department of Waste Management & Recycling does not provide commercial waste and recycling collection services. Commercial solid waste collection services are regulated by the
Sacramento Regional Solid Waste Authority (SWA) following regulatory requirements established by the State of California. The SWA maintains a
list of companies that provide commercial waste collection as well as recycling collection services.
