  • Can sewage back up in my home or business?

    Yes, in extreme situations, it is possible for sewage to back-up into a home or business. Therefore, we recommend that you install a backwater overflow protection device. Such devices are readily available and, when properly installed, will prevent any sewage back-ups into homes or businesses. Contact our Manager, Bonner Beuhler for more information. email now

 

 

Almonte Sanitary position on MVRS Food Composting services

Almonte has adopted Food Composting services through Mill Valley Refuse Service. See their website for more information. Available along with weekly green can pickup for all Almonte residents that have garbage service through MVRS.

Almonte Sanitary, through informational mailers to our residents and information posted on our website, has consistently urged residents to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to help achieve the Marin County Solid and Hazardous Waste Joint Powers Agency (JPA) adopted goals to divert 80 percent of the waste from the landfill by 2012 and to be at zero-waste by 2025, when the landfill becomes obsolete.
