Hazardous Waste Event Notice

For the past 10 years, the City of Rio Vista has provided Household Hazardous Waste Events for our residents every spring and fall for disposing paints, florescent light bulbs, batteries and other hazardous items that need to be recycled or disposed of properly.  Unfortunately, this year, we were only able to provide a springtime event.  The contract that we have had with Veolia for the collection and destruction/recycling of the hazardous wastes recently expired.  As soon as the contract is amended, finalized and executed, we will be scheduling the next event.  Once scheduled, there will be flyers in your monthly utility bill from the City and your sanitation bill from Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery – Rio Vista.   It will also be published in the Rio Vista Beacon, on this  website and the City of Rio Vista Facebook page and Next Door.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing our residents.
