Residents can be proud of Napa’s solid waste program that diverts approximately 69% of collected materials from landfill. We have a robust recycling, food scrap and composting facility, and clean Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) collection vehicles. The City extended the life of equipment and vehicles with a contract extension with Napa Recycling & Waste Services (NRWS) but expenses are expected to exceed revenues by nearly $3.2 million in 2020. Rates have not increased since 2016 but changes are proposed to meet the increasing costs of the City’s dynamic materials diversion program.
