Alameda's Green Initiatives

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 partnered with Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) and presented the Zero Waste Implementation Plan, which was adopted by City Council in October of 2010.

 

 

 

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.
