For someone experiencing homelessness, keeping themselves and their clothes clean can be incredibly challenging, and can greatly impact their ability to get and keep a job, or simply participate in society.  To meet this need, the City of Fremont, City of Newark, and several community partners developed the CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Program to provide much needed shower and laundry services to our homeless neighbors.  The CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Unit visits several locations throughout Fremont and Newark.  For individuals in Newark interested in utilizing the mobile hygiene unit, they may come out to the Salvation Army location, located at 36700 Newark Blvd., Newark, on Tuesday mornings between the hours of 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  For updates on available locations/times, call (510) 574-2222 or visit www.fremont.gov/cleanstart.


Recycling Center Closures

Alternate Beverage Container Redemption Centers
Do you have aluminum cans, plastic, or glass bottles that you are trying to redeem and are experiencing difficulties find a redemption center?  We are aware that the reduction in State fees, depressed pricing of aluminum and PET plastics, and rising operating costs have caused the closure of many beverage container redemption centers.  The closure of these centers have left Tri-CED in Union City as one of the few remaining redemption centers open in the area.  This limitation is greatly impacting Tri-CED's service times with an influx of customers waiting up to 1+ hours in line and/or in lines of over 50+ vehicles.

Individuals interested in alternate locations to redeem their beverage containers may visit:  InStore Redemption Centers  for a listing of various locations.  It is strongly recommended that individuals call the locations on the list prior to arriving to ensure the store is a current, participating CRV redemption location.
