Organizations We Support
Chiquita Canyon has been an active community partner throughout the Santa Clarita Valley over the last four decades, with significant support of our local neighbors in Val Verde and Castaic. Chiquita Canyon believes strongly in giving back to the community where we business. We support dozens of organizations through direct contributions, volunteering, fundraising, or sponsoring or participating in educational activities.
Chiquita’s Bike Build Program
In addition to supporting numerous non-profits across the SCV, Chiquita Canyon’s Christmas Promise Bike Build is a Waste Connections annual tradition of providing thousands of bicycles for underprivileged children across the country. Now in its thirteenth year, with the help from partners and local businesses, Christmas Promise Bike Build purchases and assembles bikes each holiday season and donates them to local charities. The build-a-bike program is donating more than 2,000 bicycles this year to organizations throughout the United States. Locally, Chiquita Canyon annually builds and delivers approximately 100 bikes to the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita, For the Children and Child & Family Center in Santa Clarita. The bicycles are assembled by landfill employees and their families.
THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY is also a place where Chiquita Canyon has played an active role, serving on boards and helping support organizations such as the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, SCV Latino Business Alliance, Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) and the Los Angeles County Business Federation (LA BizFed).
