ResponsibilitiesThe Environmental Programs Department is responsible for the development and implementation of a variety of programs designed to increase the awareness and desirability for recycling and conservation programs relating to the following:
Programs are designed to ensure compliance with state and federal requirements and are facilitated through the use of presentations, public events and promotional material.
For more information on Environmental Programs, please contact the department at (760) 947-1019.
Trash collection is provided to all city residences via the City's franshise waste hauler Advance Disposal. Two 95 Gallon Waste Wheeler are typically issued to residents in single family dwellings. For more information, or to request a change in service please call Advance Disposal at (760) 244-9773.
Not sure why you don't have a designated recycling can? That's because the City of Hesperia utilizes Advance Disposal's single-stream or comingled Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Although residents do not use separate containers for curbside recycling, plastic, glass, metal, wood, yard waste, paper, aluminum and tin are all hand-sorted for recycling at the MRF. Once trash is delivered to the MRF, it goes through a number of screens, shakers and conveyor belts where employees pull out various recyclables to be diverted from the San Bernardino County landfill.
While this means that Hesperia residents are not required to source separate items at the curb, residents are still encouraged to bundle their green waste separately, as well as their paper items, which are unusable if contaminated by liquids or food.

Green waste is most commonly grass, leaves, weeds and trimmings from bushes and trees. Advance Disposal's green waste program allows residents to separate out these materials curbside by bagging the green waste and placing the bag in the residential tan carts.
