San Fernando

Crown Disposal Co., Inc. currently has an exclusive contract with the City of San Fernando to provide waste and recycling services for all residential, commercial, and industrial customers, including construction and demolition hauling services. These services were the primary reason for the dramatic drop in citywide landfill tonnages from 2001 to 2006.

The City received an Innovative Organics Program award from the California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA) in 2007. The award recognized Crown Disposal's programs to recycle landscape materials, food waste, food soiled paper, and street sweepings from a wide variety of residential and commercial sources, as well as Crown Disposal's commitment to avoid the use of landscape materials as Alternative Disposal Cover materials (ADC) at area landfills.

Residential Curbside Collection

The average diversion rate for residential customers has exceeded 62% due to a multifaceted program that includes:

  • Green cart for collection of landscape materials (including palm and yucca), food waste, and food soiled paper;
  • Blue cart for collection of commingled recyclables, including paper, and metal, plastic and glass containers;
  • Grey cart for refuse which is preprocessed at a mixed waste processing facility to remove remaining recyclables, including food-soiled paper, prior to landfilling;
  • Special collection and recycling of oil, electronics and bulky waste;
  • Special services (citywide cleanups, special events).

Commercial Collection Services

Crown Disposal provides both frontloader and roll-off collection and recycling services to City of San Fernando  businesses as well as construction and demolition companies working on city projects. All commercial waste is  preprocessed prior to landfilling to remove recyclables at the Mixed Waste Material Recovery Facility operated  by  Crown Disposal's sister company, Community Recycling and Resource Recovery. All construction and  demolition (C&D) debris is also preprocessed at Community Recycling's C&D Recycling Facility to remove  recyclables prior to landfilling.

Restaurant Recycling

Restaurants in the City of San Fernando participate in a special Crown Disposal program to collect and compost leftover food scraps and food-soiled paper.
