Recyclers & Haulers

San José's Exclusive Hauler

Republic Services has an exclusive franchise to provide standard garbage, recycling, and organics services to businesses in San José.

To protect public health, businesses are required by San José Municipal Code to have solid waste collected at least once per week.

Construction, Demolition, and Residential Clean-Out Haulers

Businesses and residents may choose their own hauler from our list of non-exclusive haulers that provide these services. While we have agreements with each of these companies, it is up to you to negotiate pricing and specifics.
