About Livestock

  • We do take goldfish and Koi
  • Compost worms

With these living creatures we ask that you bring them on the day of the event so that they survive and have the chance to thrive in their new homes.

No time to repot donations? Bags and newspaper will do. If you have plants too large to remove by yourself, we may be able to help. Give us a call at (510) 866-8482.

We look forward to seeing you!
