One Truck, Two Bins, Better Service
OUR GOAL: RECYCLE 80% OF ALL WASTE IN NOVATO BY 2025
Novato Sanitary District is committed to recycling everything possible to reach our goal of recycling or reusing a record-breaking 80% of all solid waste collected in Novato by 2025. And we want to do this while minimizing our environmental footprint, which means using dual bin trucks.
DUAL BIN GARBAGE TRUCKS CARRY BOTH GARBAGE AND RECYCLING BUT IN SEPARATE COMPARTMENTS
These trucks (owned and operated by Recology, our franchise operator) not only reduce the amount of fuel and energy used, but also lower the number of truck trips for reduced wear and tear on streets. Single compartment trucks are used in a few areas where dual compartment trucks do not have easy access, or if a dual compartment truck breaks down. In this case, the single compartment truck makes two runs—one for garbage and one for recyclables.
