ABOUT DIRECT DISPOSAL
KEEPING THE PLANET CLEAN ONE SERVICE AT A TIME
Direct Disposal is an independently owned company that was founded in 1999 to provide superior customer service to Southern California . The company was founded by a waste industry veteran who has helped pioneer the industry for 38 years.
Direct Disposal began operation to service the construction and demolition market place to provide not only roll-off dumpsters but also recycling services. The mission of Direct Disposal is to provide unrivaled customer service and successfully integrate the recycling of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste. In 1989, California State Assembly had Bill 939 on the table which mandated 50% of a municipality’s waste stream must be diverted from sanitary landfills. Once the bill passed, recycling was to become state law. Direct Disposal was one of only a handful of hauling companies to identify this development and take action.
In 2003, Direct Disposal opened its C&D processing facility in East Los Angeles .The C&D facility is permitted by Calrecycle to process up to 174 tons a day of C&D waste. Today, more than 82% of all C&D waste delivered to the recycling facility is sorted into separate, reusable commodities. In fact, our current recycling rate meets the AB939 recycling goals set for the year 2020.

OUR RECYCLING FACILITY
The California State Assembly created Bill 939 in 1989, which mandated that 50% of a municipality’s waste stream be diverted from sanitary landfills. Direct Disposal was one of only a handful of companies to take action in compliance with the law. Committed to the environment, Direct Disposal also hosts a recycling facility, which processed over 45,000 tons of construction and demolition waste and inert waste material last year alone. In fact, Direct Disposal is one of the leading providers in recycling in Long Beach, Orange County, and the greater Los Angeles area.
Additionally, over 75% of the construction and demolition waste processed by Direct Disposal is sorted and recycled into reusable commodities. Direct Disposal’s recycling practices are so progressive that they are even in compliance with the AB939 recycling goals set for 2020. Direct Disposal recognizes recycling as more than a fad or an empty cause, but as a real cause with measurable and vital consequence. Accordingly, recycling is the most critical aspect of waste management. Direct Disposal recognizes this and is committed to carrying through the best possible recycling practices to maintain a healthy environment for future generations.
