Burbank Sanitary District is an independent agency which encompasses an area of approximately 0.28 square miles of unincorporated Santa Clara County. Created in 1940, Burbank Sanitary District is a special district organized under the California Health and Safety Code and the Sanitary Act of 1923. The District is responsible for sewer services and solid waste collection for the residences and businesses located within our boundaries.

While BSD owns and maintains the sewer lines within the District’s boundaries, it contracts with the San Jose Santa Clara Wastewater Facility for wastewater treatment and disposal. The District operates and services approximately 8 miles of collection sewer lines and transports approximately 336,000 gallons of sewage per day to the San Jose Santa Clara Water Pollution Control Plant. Approximately 95% of the District’s collection system was installed prior to 1955, and is currently undergoing a large rehabilitation program.

Solid waste (trash) services, including billing services, are provided through a service contract with GreenWaste Management, Inc. Solid waste services include refuse (trash), recyclable material, and yard trimming collection. In the spring of every year, there is a “Dumpster Day” for large items and electronics. Other services are available directly through GreenWaste.

The District is governed by a 5 member Board of Directors, elected at large. Election of the Directors is consolidated with the November elections, with three and two Directors being elected in alternating, odd-numbered years. Directors are elected to serve 4-year terms. The list of Board Members and terms can be found on the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters website. The Burbank Sanitary District Board generally meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7 pm, in our district office located at 20863 Stevens Creek Boulevard, Suite 100 in Cupertino, CA 95014. Some special meetings will be held within the district for public hearings, and the address will be published as they are scheduled.

Daily management is carried out by the District Manager who reports directly to the Board of Directors. The District does not directly employ any full or part-time staff. All BSD engineering, management, legal counsel, maintenance, inspection, and emergency sewer response services are contracted to outside firms.
