Welcome to Recycling & Garbage Services

Collective efforts to “Recycle Right” by Milpitas residents and businesses add up to a 70% disposal reduction of landfilled materials since 1991.  There are state mandated disposal reduction goals on the horizon that set new goals to divert organics (food scraps and yard trimmings) and increase recycling.

Residents and Business Representatives, please contact Milpitas Sanitation Customer Service at (408) 988-4500 from Monday – Friday, between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., or via email at info@MilpitasSanitation.com, with all of your recycling and garbage service questions.  If you have any further questions, please contact City of Milpitas Staff at (408) 586-3352 or (408) 586-3353.
