Solid Waste Management
The District's History Providing Solid Waste Service:
Novato Sanitary District has managed solid waste services in this community in a safe, cost-effective, and fiscally prudent manner since 1978.
Franchise Service Provider is Recology of Sonoma-Marin. In order to provide quality solid waste service to the community, Novato Sanitary District contracts with a private company through a Franchise Agreement. This agreement spells out the quality of service and cost of services to be provided. The current provider is Recology of Sonoma-Marin.
