More Information
To avoid illegal dumping, City staff will not publicly list the location of drop-off of waste and recycling. The location will be provided to the event organizer once the online form and waiver is completed. 

Once an event is organized, City staff will update this webpage to publicize the event to others who wish to join the community clean up event. Send us your flyer or photos and the City of Pinole will share them on social media to encourage more community participation.  

If you have questions, please call us at (510) 724-9010, or send your questions to [email protected]
