Curbside recycling rates have improved by 25 percent since the roll-out of single-stream recycling. View this short video to learn about the City of Napa's successful composting and recycling program and discover how materials make it from your curb to the local facility and are eventually made into new, useful products. Since the year 2000, the City of Napa has consistently met or exceeded the state mandate to divert at least 50 percent of solid waste from the landfill. Building off this success, on July 24, 2012, the Napa City Council adopted a Disposal Reduction Policy, which established a goal that at least 75 percent of the solid waste generated by the city of Napa will be source-reduced, recycled, or composted by the year 2020.
