The County of Contra Costa, California (the County) was incorporated in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties of the State of California. Contra Costa County’s 750 square miles are ideally located in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has a temperate climate, beautiful geographical setting, and shares in California’s continuing growth. The Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority (CCCSWA) dba RecycleSmart is dedicated to developing and delivering high quality, cost effective solid waste diversion, reduction, recycling, and refuse programs that provide and promote sustainability in its communities. Under the direction of the Board of Directors, the Executive Director serves as the Chief Executive Officer of CCCSWA and is responsible for the efficient and effective leadership, management, and administration of the agency’s operations and programs.
