Apartment buildingsCollection Services
GreenTeam of San Jose provides recycling and garbage collection service to all apartment and condominium complexes in San José. Your monthly service fee is based on:
  • The frequency of collection.
  • The number and sizes of all the garbage dumpsters in use at your complex.
  • The distances and numbers of containers (garbage or recycling) that need to be pushed by the driver into an accessible position for collection.

Garbage rates include once-a-week collection of recycling bins or carts. The more your residents recycle, the more you can control garbage service fees. Recycling is easy and helps save resources. All recyclables go together into the same recycling bin.

For Tenants
Residents of apartments and condos should contact property managers about the following:
  • Large item collection appointments for items such as sofas, mattresses, televisions, and computers
  • Illegal dumping on premises
  • Missed collection
  • Overflowing dumpsters, bins, and carts
  • Broken dumpsters, bins, and carts
  • Graffiti
