The SMaRT Station

The SMaRT Station accepts recyclable materials and self-hauled garbage from residents and businesses in Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Palo Alto.


Water Pollution Control Plant Infrastructure

Sunnyvale’s Water Pollution Control Plant treats and cleans wastewater from Sunnyvale businesses and homes prior to discharge into the San Francisco Bay. At almost sixty years old, the Plant began undergoing major construction and much needed upgrades in fall 2014.


Sunnyvale has Zero Waste goals!

The work of the Recycling Program supports the Zero Waste Strategic Plan adopted by the City Council in 2013. Sunnyvale has achieved a current rate of 66% diversion from landfill and the goal is 90% by 2030. Photo credit: Bill Watson
