Waste Management Contamination Monitoring Program

In November of 2021, Waste Management mailed a courtesy notice letter to all businesses and multi-family property owners detailing the implementation of the Contamination Monitoring Program.

As Part of Waste Management’s Contamination Monitoring Program, Waste Management drivers will be leaving contamination tags on recycling, food scraps, and green waste bins if there appears to be over 20% contamination. Two emails will be sent to the email on file for commercial customers.  

Additionally, each commercial customer may receive up to two courtesy contamination notifications each calendar year. Any contamination occurrences after the second courtesy notification may be subject to a contamination charge by Waste Management.

Please contact Waste Management at or (760) 439-2824 with any questions.
