Materials Recovery Facility
The City has contracted with Athens Services to provide waste hauling service in West Covina and has a program which sends the City's waste to a materials recovery facility (MRF) in the City of Industry where it is processed to retrieve recyclables from the waste stream.
Residents use green waste containers for plant/grass clippings (which are diverted to landfills and used as alternative daily cover) and black trash containers (or bins, if you are a business or multifamily customer) for trash.
Curbside sorting is not necessary, although residents may pre-sort their own trash to recycle and redeem their Cash Refund Value (CRV) items.
Waste will not go directly to a landfill. Instead, the waste goes to Athens' MRF for separation of recyclable materials from disposable materials. This process has increased the City's diversion rate to 58% for the year 2003, higher than the State-mandated 50%.
For any questions regarding the MRF, your trash collection bill, or to inquire about taking a tour of the MRF, contact Athens Services at (626) 336-6100. Bulky-Item Pickup
