Apple Valley Waste sustainability.


From trash into fuel. Sustainability you can see.

Apple Valley Waste is revolutionizing the waste management industry with the help of Entsorga, the nation’s first resource recovery facility to convert mixed municipal solid waste and non-hazardous materials into an EPA-recognized renewable fuel with Entsorga Italia’s patented HEBioTTM process. The Entsorga facility recovers plastics, biomass and carbon-based materials from the waste it receives from Apple Valley and converts them into renewable fuel. The fuel, called Solid Recovered Fuel, is then used by major manufacturers and industries requiring large amounts of energy as a eco-friendly, cost-effective alternative and/or supplement to fossil fuels.

Diverting waste from landfills, protecting the environment

At Apple Valley, we know the urgency of responsible waste management. Doing our part to protect the environment and keep the spaces where we live, work, and play clean is critical to our mission to be your go-to waste management provider. With the help of our partners at Entsorga, we are working tirelessly to make a positive mark on our environment with innovative, technology-driven solutions. By recovering every material we can for tomorrow’s energy needs, we are diverting waste from our area landfills while simultaneously supporting new, science-backed energy solutions. Sustainability in action.

We invite you to join our mission of conscientious waste management through cutting edge technology and science that is paving the way for a more environmentally sustainable future!

Recycling through Apple Valley Recycling


Recycling takes effort and a willingness to be intentional about the products and materials we dispose of. We are on board – and we hope you are, too! Our state-of-the-art single stream recycling center accepts recyclable materials around the clock, processing 10 tons of recyclable material per hour. Our education center frequently offers opportunities for visitors and customers to gain a fuller understanding of how their recycling efforts pay off and what we do with their recyclable material.
