Throughout Marin county and the greater Bay Area, businesses, organizations and individuals continue to recognize the key role that a person on a bicycle can play in improving our community. As a small “thank-you” for their enthusiasm for MCBC efforts, we will be highlighting a variety of key sponsors that play an integral role in supporting the MCBC Experience…

Marin Sanitary Service (MSS) is central Marin’s resource hauler providing curbside recycling, organics, and garbage service to residential and commercial businesses. With a recycling rate of 75%, MSS is a forerunner in their industry with a mission to protect the environment and goals of greenhouse gas reductions.

With so many trucks on the road every morning, MSS holds safety as one of its highest priorities. All drivers are trained on proper biking procedures and courtesy to ensure biker and driver safety. In addition, their commitment in environmental stewardship and safety extends beyond their day to day operations and into their employees lives.

In partnership with the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program, MSS encourages all employees to use alternative modes of transportations for commuting. They also provide secure, indoor bike parking for all employees who choose to bike to work, along with incentives and rewards for those who participate. Together Marin Sanitary Service and their employees are working hard to support and promote safe biking for our community and workforce.
