Recycling

Recycling has numerous positive impacts on our community and resources.  OC Waste & Recycling deeply values diverting recyclable material from landfills so it can be reused or repurposed. Programs we currently have in place include composting, metal recycling and mattress recycling. 

The County of Orange operates one of the nation’s premier solid waste disposal systems, providing this essential public service to residents and businesses in 34 cities and unincorporated areas. Our three active landfills are among the largest statewide, receiving more than four million tons of solid waste annually.
