Napa Recycling & Waste Services Safety Updates

Question: Is it still safe to recycle during COVID-19?

Answer: YES!!!

To keep our employees and customers healthy and safe as we continue with our essential collection and processing services, we continue to following our Pandemic Plan, which includes:

  • To protect our sorters from any virus present on boxes or containers, all recycling is dumped out of the truck and left to sit for 3 days before being processed.
  • All employees are provided masks and gloves.
  • Every driver, equipment operator, mechanic and scalehouse attendant is supplied hospital-grade disinfectant to spray down equipment pre- and post- usage. Managers frequently clean common areas throughout the day.
  • We’ve closed breakrooms, discontinued physical punchclocks, and required social distancing by moving to virtual meetings and remote work for non-operations staff.
