In February of 2008, Alameda City Council adopted a Resolution which set a citywide greenhouse gas reduction goal: 25% below 2005 baseline levels. The City Council also adopted the Local Action Plan for Climate Protection, which offers a framework for achieving this goal.
The City of Alameda is a fully opted-in jurisdiction of the County's Mandatory Recycling Ordinance. Businesses and multifamily properties of 5 units or more must have adequate recycling and composting service.
