Where does all that trash go?

The typical amount of trash an American will throw away amounts to 600 times his or her adult weight. For every 150 pound adult, he or she leaves behind 90,000 pounds of trash. That’s a whole lot of trash to dispose of, so going about getting rid of it properly is important because the way you leave your environment is part of the heritage your children and the next generation will receive.

Hambro WSG is located in Crescent City, in Northern California’s Del Norte County. We are the only place for folks to bring their trash for disposal in the county.

We follow rules from the state of California’s Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery program, CalRecycle. CalRecycle unites the state’s recycling and waste management programs to oversee and maintain proper environmental stewardship.
