Oakland Trash Hauling and Junk Removal

Oakland, California, is one of the largest port cities in the United States and is the single busiest port for San Francisco and all of Northern California. With roughly 420,000 residents, it’s the 8th largest city in California. This city averages over 250 sunny days each year and offers a vibrant and diverse cultural life as well as professional sporting events (A’s, Raiders, & Warriors) and A-list shows at the Oracle Arena and Coliseum. Oakland also is home to some of Northern California recognizable landmarks, such as the Dunsmuir-Hellman Estate, the Paramount and Fox Theaters,  Jack London Square, and some of the finest open spaces, parks, and trails for nature enthusiasts.

As demonstrated by the impressive “environmentally friendly city” initiatives, Oakland continues to be ranked as on of the top metropolitan areas in the US for sustainability practices. The city offers a variety of services for trash and recycling collection. One example is their program for multi-unit buildings (5-9 units), through which residents can utilize the two-container program:

  • Recycling – weekly cans, jars, bottles, paper and cardboard recycling
  • Garbage – weekly trash, plastic bags and other non-recyclable materials

The program for Multi-Family residential units also incorporates:

  • Optional yard trimming and compostable materials pick up (food scraps recycling)
  • Optional bulk items pick up (limited to the first 1,100 callers)

Oakland’s Residential Recycling & Garbage Program for Single-Family Homes (SFR) and 2-4 Unit Apartment Buildings also includes weekly yard trimmings and food scraps recycling. The SFR program additionally incorporates:

  • Used oil filters and motor oil – weekly collection for recycling
  • Bulky items pickup and recycling (household appliances and other bulky items)
  • Christmas tree recycling each January

For residents that live in a larger building, the city doesn’t offer bulky item pickup, but it may be available at a small cost from the city’s waste management team. Currently plant debris is no longer accepted at landfills in Alameda County, requiring residents and businesses to get rid of them through the proper organic collection services.

If you have bulky appliances or waste, extra garbage, construction debris, unwanted electronics, and unwanted furniture that aren’t appropriate for standard trash or recycling pick-up, contact EZ Junk Hauling for the following services:
