GreenWaste offers two ways to collect yard trimmings:
- Place your yard trimmings loose in the street (no extra charge).
- Place your yard trimmings in your optional yard trimmings cart for collection. Visit sanjoseca.gov/311, dial 3-1-1, or call (408) 535-3500 to order a yard trimmings cart and start your yard trimmings subscription. Yard trimmings carts are mandatory in some areas of the city for yard trimmings collection.
All yard trimmings collected in the City of San Jose are brought to the GreenWaste Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in San Jose.
Did you know that GreenWaste processes most of the material produced in San Jose at our MRF? While GreenWaste collects only yard trimmings material from your home, your recyclables and garbage are likely sorted for recovery in our facility.
