In November 2018, Sonoma County Resource recovery notified the Town of Windsor that we were not able to meet its financial obligations. This was due to unforeseen and uncontrollable factors which included labor rates increasing in the county, the value of recyclable commodities dropping significantly as a result of China’s national sword policy coming into effect, differences in actual disposal, recyclables and organics tonnages compared to the available data at the time of the RFP and additional services provided to Town of Windsor designated locations. This rate increase helps the company to cover these additional costs. In addition, it includes the contract approved annual rate adjustment.
The Town Council approved the rate increase to be effective April 1, 2020 (meaning this increase is effective retroactively to April 1, 2020). This is to align with the new annual rate adjustment date of April 1.
If your regular service day is on or after the holiday, then your collection will be delayed one day that week. Normal collection will resume the following week. There are no delays for Sunday holidays.

We will make sure your account is properly documented and credited based on the date the service cancellation or change is effective, as indicated by you in either the cancellation form or service change request.
If you are canceling your service and moving out of Windsor, and you wish to receive a refund in the form of a check, we can do that if you provide a forwarding address where indicated on the form.
Note: Our rates are bundled. For the price of your landfill cart (for non-recyclable materials), a base level of service for recyclables and organics collection service are included.
If, on collection day, you have noticed excess capacity in your gray landfill cart that would allow you to decrease your service level, please contact us.
These guidelines may help you determine whether you can decrease the size of your gray landfill cart. Always check the fullness of your landfill cart after all waste has been placed in it the night before your regularly scheduled collection day.
- If your current landfill cart is 96-gallons, you may safely decrease your landfill cart size to a 64-gallon cart if you have excess capacity of at least 1/3 of the space inside your cart.
- If your current landfill cart is 64-gallons, you may safely decrease your landfill cart size to a 32-gallon cart if you have excess capacity of at least ½ of the space inside your cart.
- If your current landfill cart is 32-gallons, you may safely decrease your landfill cart size to a 20-gallon cart if you have excess capacity of at least 1/3 the space inside your cart.
To determine the size of any of your carts, please note the first two digits stamped onto the side of the cart. These two digits indicate the capacity, in gallons, of your cart.
