The City of Livermore converted the lawn at our Maintenance Service Center last year. Please join us at a free follow-up workshop on April 29 from 9:30 - 12:30 pm at the same location, 3500 Robertson Park Road to learn how to maintain a recently converted lawn. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on tips on lawn conversion and mulching, information about rebates, and learn about discounts with local vendors for plants and sheet mulch materials.
Registration for the free event is required at www.stopwaste.org/lawnparty

Beginning May 1, 2017, all retail stores in Alameda County will no longer provide customers with single-use plastic bags upon checkout. Bags made of recycled paper or reusable bags will be available for a minimum price of 10 cents per bag. Consumers may use any type of bags they wish and are strongly encouraged to do so. Small plastics bags used to protect and transport produce, bulk food, or meat from within a store to the checkout or cash register will still be available free of charge.

As of July 1, 2011, the City of Livermore's Ordinance banning Styrofoam® 'to-go' containers for foodservice businesses officially takes effect. By switching to recyclable and compostable take-out alternatives, Livermore's businesses will be reducing both litter and water pollution. The City applauds foodservice businesses that have already discontinued the use of Styrofoam. Wondering how you too can make the switch? Take a look at the information below, email us, or call 925-960-8015.
