The Recycling and Waste Reduction Commission of Santa Clara County provides leadership for countywide planning and works to assure the success of countywide cooperative programs to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials that otherwise would be disposed of in landfills.

The ten member commission serves as the principal advisory body to city and town councils and the Board of Supervisors of Santa Clara County on countywide solid waste planning issues. The Commission also has state-mandated responsibilities, such as review and oversight of the Countywide Integrated Waste Management Plan and Siting Element, local Source Reduction and Recycling Elements, Household Hazardous Waste Elements, and Non-disposal Facility Elements. All of these documents are required by state law.
