Earth is Plan(et) A – there is no Plan B. Let's do all we can to protect it, and this includes disposing of waste properly. To help do your part - September is Clean Sweep Month in American Canyon, and there are many programs and opportunities to get rid of unwanted clutter in your house and protect the environment. 

Check your mailboxes for a handy coupon to dispose of unwanted bulky/large items for FREE! The City and Recology have partnered to offer all residents a FREE opportunity to drop off large, difficult to dispose of items during the month of September. Just take your stuff (and the coupon) to the Recology facility located at 2021 Broadway in Vallejo and they will take it for FREE. You can also call them to arrange FREE curbside pick-up of bulky items too.

On Saturday, September 15th, join members of your community to remove trash and other debris from various areas throughout our City during Coastal Cleanup Day. Enjoy a light breakfast before grabbing the clean-up supplies that we will be providing. Don’t forget to register your group for this event and remember that children 14 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

Saturday, September 29th, our Final Sweep Event, is the last chance to participate in Clean Sweep Month and clear your household of any additional junk, such as e-waste, mattresses, and tires, and also take advantage of our paper shredding services. This FREE event will be held at Donaldson Way Elementary, 430 Donaldson Way, from 9 AM to 3 PM.

Just a friendly reminder that all paper, glass, metal, and rigid plastics can go into the blue recycling bins. Anything that is not recyclable or compostable, such as plastic bags, plastic utensils, chip and snack bags, Styrofoam, gloves, etc. go into the black landfill bins. All food (produce, meat and poultry, dairy, bread, cooked foods), soiled paper (paper towels, napkins, take-out containers, waxed cardboard), and organic materials (yard trimmings, leaves, sawdust, non-painted wood) belong in the brown or green compost bin. 

By working together we can make sure future generations aren’t left to clean up our messes.

Cannabis Ordinance
After several workshops and months of outreach, the City Council will consider a Cannabis Ordinance at their meeting this coming Tuesday evening to approve a licensing and public review process that would allow commercial cannabis businesses in the Green Island Industrial Park and home delivery services. Cannabis storefront retail dispensaries and outdoor backyard cannabis cultivation at a residence would remain prohibited. A minimum buffer zone would further separate cannabis businesses from schools, parks, and residential neighborhoods.  The ordinance can be viewed on our website.
