Collection Services
GreenWaste Recovery provides weekly collection of garbage, recyclable materials and yard trimmings for residences located in the City of Scotts Valley. 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 Scotts Valley.

Recycling & Disposal

Recyclables collected in Scotts Valley are brought to the GreenWaste Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in San Jose for processing.
The garbage, remaining non-recyclable and non-compostable residuals are transported to a landfill for disposal.    
All yard trimmings go to Buena Vista Landfill in Watsonville and are screened for processing. Woody debris is chipped and used as co-generation fuel and the rest is composted and used as a high-quality soil amendment.

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