Environmental Stewardship

Redwood Landfill and Recycling Center's top priority is to practice environmental stewardship. In addition to encouraging reuse and recycling activities, we also work to ensure the continued protection of Petaluma Marsh.

About Petaluma Marsh

At 5,000 acres, Petaluma Marsh is the largest salt marsh in San Pablo Bay. Redwood Landfill's acreage includes 35 acres of protected wetlands. The area is part of the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

In 2003, Redwood converted 180 acres of its site to wetlands. Redwood and the Marin Audubon Society worked together to transfer ownership of the acreage and to open an old dike to allow the area to return to wetland status. This area is now home to shorebirds and water fowl.
