Do Not


Recycling Pickup

Now recycling is easier than ever.

Blue Cart

The Recycling cart may be placed in front of your residence every other week for collection.

You should place the cart near the curb three feet from your drive way and three feet from your garbage cart.

Please note: your recyclable materials will be collected with a different truck than your regular garbage and consequently will be collected at a different time of day.

The Community of Mountain House, in coordination with West Valley Disposal Service, provides curbside recycling to residents of Mountain House. The blue recycling cart is provided to you to store your recyclable materials.
