The City’s Community Services Department provides trash collection and recycling services to all residents and businesses in Claremont.
The City has long been a leader in providing innovative solid waste disposal programs. Curbside recycling began here in 1983, years before most other cities even considered providing collection of recyclable materials. Our operation has remained on the leading edge of refuse and recycling technology by adding automated containers, commingled recycling, green waste collection, and variable rates.

According to Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), the business sector generates more than half of the solid waste in California (approximately 68% of waste disposed). While significant commercial recycling already occurs, much of the commercial sector waste disposed in landfills is clean enough to be recycled. CalRecycle recently adopted Assembly Bill 341, implementing a mandatory commercial recycling requirement for medium-to-large businesses and multi-family complexes. To learn more about the legislation and how businesses can divert waste from landfills, thereby reducing greenhouse gas, please click here.
