Materials Recovery Facility

Athens Services is contracted by the City to provide waste hauling service in West Covina and for their material recovery facility (MRF) program; the City's waste is sent to a materials recovery facility where recyclables from the waste stream are retrieved. 

Residents use green waste containers for plant/grass clippings which are diverted to landfills and used as an alternative daily cover. Black trash containers/bins are for the trash produced by businesses or multifamily customers 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.
