Got Recyclables and Need Service? We Can Help!

While recycling is mandatory (AB 341) for businesses in California, Sunnyvale's own material recovery facility, the SMaRT Station®, sorts and recovers recyclables from the waste stream which allows for flexibility in the mandatory requirement as long as businesses are using the City's franchised hauler, Specialty. Businesses that have limited or no space for recycling containers or don't produce enough recyclables, are not required to set up a formal recycling program.

Recycling options are available to suit different needs. Restaurants can contact the San Jose Conservation Corps by email or at 408-459-6484 for free recycling pickup of glass bottles and other containers. Businesses that have cardboard can have it collected by Specialty or work with private recyclers for collection of other recyclables. And, food scrap collection is now available to qualifying businesses. Visit Recycling.inSunnyvale.com or call 408-730-7484 for assistance.

Know How to Be Flood Safe in Sunnyvale

With the storm season fast approaching, we know from recent experience that many neighborhoods in Sunnyvale experienced localized flooding during the intense storm of December 11, 2014. City staff has been hard at work cleaning more than 4,200 catch basins, ensuring the two existing storm pump stations are ready for any upcoming winter season.

While the City is working to mitigate flooding, it is important that property owners prepare for a flood and share the responsibility for minimizing the risk of flood damage caused by rain. To find out whether your property is in a SFHA or for flood protection assistance information, visit the City’s flood safety website at FloodSafety.inSunnyvale.com or call the Public Works Administration Division at 408-730-7415.

If you observe flooding in any part of the city, call the Utilities Customer Service Center at 408-730-7400. Flood zone maps and flood protection reference materials are also available at the Sunnyvale Public Library.
