Let's Talk Trash
Although residents do not use separate containers for curbside recycling, plastic, glass, metal, wood, yard waste, paper, aluminum and tin are hand-sorted for recycling at the Material Recovery Facility (MRF). Once trash is delivered to the MRF, it goes through a number of screens, shakers and conveyor belts where employees pull out 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.
To operate the most efficient disposal and recycling program, please continue to follow these disposal guidelines when setting out your trash containers:
Place all tan waste wheelers curbside by 6:00 am (standard and daylight savings time) on your scheduled pick-up day
Place containers with wheels against the curb or right-of-way with handles facing your home at least two feet away from cars, mail boxes and other containers
To reduce litter, bag trash before putting it in the container
All materials must be placed in the containers in order to be collected
If you have extra green waste or bulky items, please contact Advance Disposal at (760) 244-9773 to make special collection arrangements.
