Recycling

It Works Because of You!
The residents of Chino Hills are coming through in a big way for the next generation and for the City by continuing to reduce and recycle over half of their solid waste. Recycling allows the City to comply with the State’s strict recycling laws, which require cities to reduce their waste by 50 percent or pay steep fines.  

What Goes Where?  A Sorting Guide
Your support of “Chino Hills Recycles” is a big step towards solving our waste problems now and into the future.  The Chino Hills Recycles automated waste collection and recycling program helps control the volume of waste dumped into our landfills.

Chino Hills Recycles was designed with you in mind and requires very little effort. The program uses three 100-gallon containers: 

  • Gray for recyclables
  • Black for yard waste
  • Green for trash

To make the program a success and to avoid common sorting mistakes, like bagging yard waste, please follow these simple sorting guidelines:
