StopWaste is a public agency responsible for reducing the waste stream in Alameda County.
We help local governments, businesses, schools and residents reduce waste through:
- Source reduction and recycling
- Market development
- Technical assistance
- Public education
We are governed jointly by three Boards, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority, the Alameda County Source Reduction and Recycling Board, and the Energy Council.
We take a comprehensive approach to stopping waste. Our work influences decisions made by people at every phase of the materials management cycle, from purchasing and consumption choices to what happens when products are discarded.
