RECYCLEBANK PARTNERSHIP:

The City of Alhambra and Allied Waste Services (AWS) are partners with Recyclebank. Recyclebank members earn points each time they recycle, leading to discounts on products and services from local and national retailers.  

COMPLIANCE WITH STATE RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS:

  • Alhambra complies with all state recycling requirements, including legislation that imposes Mandatory Commercial Recycling on all businesses that generate at least four cubic yards of trash per week, and also on all multi-family dwelling that have 5 units and more.
  • The City's waste haulers send both commercial and multi-family dwelling solid waste to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where recyclable items are pulled out of the waste stream and recycled. These facilities are very effective at extracting valuable recyclable items from the waste stream.
  • MRF-ing the City’s solid waste has helped increase the City’s diversion rate over what is achieved through ourcurbside recycling program. Located in Anaheim, Allied Waste/Consolidated Disposal Services’ MRF processes an average of 4,800 tons of materials daily using automated and manual sorting systems. The MRF has an Eco Center that gives viewers a front-line perspective on what happens to their waste and recyclables. Anyone interested in touring the MRF can call 800-299-4898.
