Costa Mesa Sanitary District:

Mission Statement: Protecting our community’s health and the environment by providing solid waste and sewer collection services.

The Costa Mesa Sanitary District was formed in 1944 under the Sanitary District Act of 1923. The District boundaries encompass all of the City of Costa Mesa and portions of Newport Beach and unincorporated Orange County. The population is approximately 116,700.

The District is responsible for residential trash collection and transmittal to a recycling facility for recycling and disposal. The District also provides liquid waste collection and transmission to Orange County Sanitation District facilities for treatment and disposal.

The District’s method of recycling allows residents to place their trash in standardized 65-gallon mixed waste containers without any sorting. The trash is taken to a recycling facility in Stanton where it is mechanically and hand sorted and the recyclables are removed. Additionally, the Organics Recycling program, implemented in 2015, allows participating residents to utilize up to two organics carts with no additional fee. The organics carts can be used to dispose of yard and kitchen waste. This organic material is collected and taken to CR&R’s Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Facility in Perris, CA to be converted into renewable natural gas to fuel CR&R’s collection fleet.
