Collection Services
GreenWaste Recovery provides the weekly collection of garbage, recyclable materials and yard trimmings for residences located in the City of Capitola. Materials are placed out for collection in three containers – garbage, single-stream recycling and yard trimmings. Once placed curbside, materials are collected in a dual compartment vehicle, with garbage and yard trimmings co-collected in one side of the vehicle and recyclables kept separate in the other side of the vehicle. 

Please see the Services Offered section of our website for a complete list of available services for residents in Capitola.

Recycling & Disposal
Recyclables collected in the City of Capitola are brought to GreenWaste’s Operations and Transfer Facility in Watsonville, then on to the GreenWaste Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in San Jose for processing.
All garbage collected is transported to Monterey Regional Waste Management Division for disposal.    
All yard trimmings are delivered to the Monterey Regional Waste Management Division in Marina where they are screened and processed into co-generation fuel and high-quality soil amendment.

Only the non-recyclable and non-compostable residuals remaining are transported to a landfill for disposal.
