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.
