State legislation (SB 1383) mandates that California reduce its total methane emissions from landfills. When food scraps are sent to the landfill, methane is generated, a potent greenhouse gas. In Fall of 2021, WVC&R will deliver kitchen pails to Single-Family and Multi-Family Residents. You can do your part by placing food scraps in your new kitchen pail during the week and then transferring the contents to your yard trimmings container for weekly collection. For questions about SB 1383, please visit the FAQs page of our website or submit one below.

The West Valley Solid Waste Management Authority was established in 1998 as a Joint Powers Authority (Authority) by the Santa Clara County California cities of Campbell, Saratoga, Monte Sereno and the Town of Los Gatos to arrange for and manage the collection, disposal, recycling and landfill diversion of solid waste originating in the four member municipalities. The Authority is governed by a four-member Board of Directors, who are appointed by, and are current members of, the Councils of the member agencies. The Authority Board holds regular meetings four times per year, with occasional special meetings as needed to conduct Authority business.
