Household Hazardous Waste Program Expands Days/Hours, and Begins Accepting Electronic Waste

Starting January 2, 2015 the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facilities will increase open hours. The Oakland facility will be open an extra day per week on Wednesdays, and the Hayward and Livermore facilities will open every Friday and Saturday, instead of alternating weeks. New materials that will be accepted include electronic wastes such as computers, radios and televisions. Additionally, multifamily property owners can now bring hazardous waste from property maintenance work or from their tenants to the drop-off centers free of charge (drop-off for single-family residents is free). For more information see the StopWaste announcement. Note: The original press release incorrectly listed the Friday hours for the Hayward and Livermore facilities as 9-4. They are 9-2:30. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Oro Loma Wet Weather Equalization and Ecotone Demonstration Project

The Oro Loma Sanitary District (OLSD) proposes to implement the Oro Loma Wet Weather Equalization and Ecotone Demonstration Project [ 28MB] (proposed project), which would include a multipurpose wet‐weather equalization facility that will include both a treatment wetland and an upland ecotone slope for polishing of treated wastewater. The facility will accommodate infrequent peak wet-weather flows, and provide an opportunity to pilot several adaptation strategies related to sea level rise, water quality protection, and infrastructure sustainability. The proposed project is located near the eastern shoreline of San Francisco Bay, approximately 4 miles south of the Oakland International Airport.
