Waste Management

Kensington residents participate in a "reduce, reuse, and recycling" program. Our solid waste and recycling provider is Bay View Refuse and Recycling.For questions concerning Bay View Refuse and Recycling please contact Greg Christie, supervisor, at (510) 237-4614 or email him at bvrrsvc@aol.com. Our community reduces what we send to the landfill by offering various opportunities to recycle, by providing special community pick-ups for still-useful items and by providing a pick-up for no longer useful electronics. For instance we encourage residents to leave true trash at the curb for the "Big Pick Up" but bring still-useful items to the Goodwill truck the Saturday before the pick up (see details below).

The solid waste and recycling program is overseen by our General Manager, Greg Harman. He can be reached at (510) 526-4141 or by email at gharman@kensingtoncalifornia.org. Some services provided to Kensington residents:
