Over 75% of the waste we produce is recyclable but only if it is clean and dry. Plastic bags, film plastic, and wrappers, such as grocery bags, bread bags, chip bags, sandwich bags and produce bags are no longer accepted. Do not bag your recyclables, (shredded paper should be the only bagged item in a clear see thru bag).
All businesses are required to recycle. The City of Watsonville is committed to supporting your business with compliance. Our goal is to make recycling easier for your business and reach full compliance.
The City’s Solid Waste Division also provides Organics Waste Recycling services for local businesses, for more information please contact Customer Service (831) 768-3133.
