Zero Waste Sonoma is the new face of the Sonoma County Waste Management Agency (SCWMA). Our mission and values are the same, but our name and logo have changed to better reflect our identity as a government agency separate from, but related to, Sonoma County. Our new name also captures the regional commitment of achieving zero waste by 2030, which means diverting 100% of all material from landfills and into more beneficial use.
As the joint powers authority for the unincorporated area and nine cities and towns in Sonoma County, we are the local government entity for all things related to recycling and solid waste disposal. Zero Waste Sonoma exists to serve you: the residents and businesses of Sonoma County. We want to help you reduce, reuse, recycle, and discard all materials in the safest and most environmentally responsible way possible.
We manage programs in composting and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), and we provide solid waste planning and reporting as well as education and outreach for all ten member jurisdictions. In turn, representatives from each of the jurisdictions make up our Agency board.
