Going Green

Union City is proud to support projects that have a green impact on the environment for our community and our world. Electric-vehicle drivers can charge up at our EV charging station on Smith Street. Our Decoto Green Streets project filters stormwater runoff, so that pollutants from our streets don't end up in our Bay. Solar carports at the Ruggieri Senior Center and Mark Green Sports Center help capture clean solar energy, while protecting vehicles from the elements.

We also have a robust recycling and composting program, with the goal of diverting 90% of our community's waste away from landfills (by recycling, composting, or sustainable purchasing) by the year 2020.

In addition, you can find our Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gases in our city.
