CHIQUITA CANYON SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTS THEIR FIRST RECYCLING AND EDUCATION PROGRAM IN 2018
At the beginning of the year, Chiquita Canyon implemented a successful recycling public awareness and education program for Santa Clarita Valley residents.
Castaic, Calif. (December 17, 2018) – To comply with their Conditional Use Permit, Chiquita Canyon Landfill implemented a recycling public awareness and education program for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. With their mission to strive for a cleaner and healthier Santa Clarita Valley, Chiquita Canyon assisted the public with properly recycling materials.
“We are very excited to be closing out a successful year, specifically with our recycling program that we started just 12 months ago,” stated Steve Cassulo, District Manager for Chiquita Canyon. “As we’ve mentioned, we wanted to show the residents of Santa Clarita that we are a good neighbor and the turnout that we received throughout the year with community members bringing their items showed just that.”
Chiquita Canyon accepted recycling for mattresses, electronic waste, household hazardous waste, white goods, and metal. Chiquita created a page on their website that gave residents information on what could be recycled and how to go about bringing their items to the facility.
Furthermore, Chiquita Canyon provided resources to recycle plastic bags, mobile devices, and clothing as well as Los Angeles County’s household hazardous waste and e-waste schedule.
