Garbage Services
Garbage Collection
Garbage & recycling collection is provided by Richmond Sanitary Service, doing business as Crockett Garbage Service. They service Port Costa and Tormey, as well.

  • For all matters concerning residential service, you may call (510) 262-1608.
  • For commercial services, call (510) 262-1605.

Garbage & recycling rates have been set by Contra Costa County.

Services Provided
Residents have a choice of backyard or curbside garbage service, available at different rates. The rate also depends on the size of your garbage can. Collection is made once every week. Customers should provide their own garbage cans.

The company provides 65 gallon containers for greenwaste and for mixed glass/paper/cardboard/ plastic/aluminum/scrap metal materials. Greenwaste is collected once a month. Other recyclables are collected every other week.

Bills are sent to customers by mail tri-monthly. For 2012, the charge for servicing a 35 gallon garbage can (curbside pickup) plus recycling service is $26.61 per month. Please call the company for other rate information.

By County ordinance, all occupied properties are required to have garbage & recycling collection. Those who avoid service may find that the County can place service charges on the property tax bill anyway. Please do the right thing and keep our town clean by subscribing for garbage service.

  • For illegal dumping on public right-of-ways, contact the County Public Works Department.
