The list below will help you determine what you may put in your mixed recycling can. "Mixed" or "single-stream" recycling (as it is sometimes called) means that you can put all of your recycling in one can, so there's no need to sort items by type. For a printable version of our Recycling and Household Hazardous Wastes information, download our Recycling Guide (pdf). Items accepted in our curbside program are not the only ones Marin residents can recycle, visit Marin Recycles to learn more.
We offer free curbside collections of latex paint, used motor oil, oil filters and common household batteries (not car batteries). Also some e-waste (computers, TV's). See our Hazardous Wastes page for more information.
MVRS offers a less expensive 20-gallon can rate for customers who recycle and compost so much that they do not fill larger-size cans with trash. You must purchase a new 20-gallon can from a local store if you wish to switch to the 20-gallon can rate. Reduce, reuse, recycle and compost as much as you are able to see if you can drop a can size and save money in the long run.
