CR&R, Incorporated, our franchised trash hauler, handles all waste and recycling services for the City of Dana Point. CR&R provides three containers to each single-family residence: one refuse container, one recycle container, and one green waste container. Residents are expected to separate their waste into these three containers in order to increase the recycling rate in Dana Point and avoid filling our landfill. Please click here to view CR&R's Residential Waste and Recycling Guide. CR&R picks up these barrels once per week according to a set “residential route” schedule. The trash trucks that drive the residential routes are environmentally friendly Liquid Natural Gas powered vehicles.
Residents have the choice to order 35, 67, or 96 gallon containers at varying prices. The cost of trash service for residential customers ranges from $14.25 - $15.99 per month, depending upon the size of your containers. Residents may request unlimited additional recycle containers for free and at least one extra green waste container for free. Single-family and Multi-Family cart residences are also entitled to two free Bulky Item pickups per year. Bulky items include large appliances, furniture, televisions, electronic waste, some forms of universal waste, and other large items that cannot fit into a regular waste container.

CR&R, Incorporated, our franchised trash hauler, handles all waste and recycling services for the City of Dana Point. CR&R provides waste carts or three-yard bins for multi-family residences. All waste from Multi-Family residences that have bin services is hauled and processed at CR&R's Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) where the waste is manually sorted to achieve maximum diversion of recycleable items. It is best to separate the wet and dry waste if possible because it makes it easier to separate at the MRF. For more information about Multi-Family recycling, please contact CR&R at (877) 728-0446.
