avis Waste Removal began providing waste management services to Davis in 1972. Our mission is to effectively serve the waste and recycling needs of our customers and the City of Davis, while ensuring a safe and rewarding career for our employees. We strive to be innovative and professional, demonstrating the highest degree of integrity and service for our customers, employees and the environment.
We know there is more to successful solid-waste disposal than simply picking up the garbage. It has to be done in a manner that satisfies not only the individual customer, but also the community and the environment. In the ideal waste-management system, there would be no waste; every article of refuse could be reclaimed, just as in nature. We work to come as close to that as possible, always striving to employ the latest technology to make our systems more efficient and comprehensive.
Using the latest equipment and handling methods, we offer a variety of residential and commercial services to the City of Davis, El Macero, Willowbank, rural Davis and rural Yolo County:

Keeping Davis green
Davis Waste Removal began curbside collection of newspapers in 1974 at the suggestion of local environmental advocates. Later the same year, pickup was expanded to include cans and bottles.
In 1976, Davis Waste Removal took over the entire recycling program, which has since expanded to include mixed paper, glass, aluminum cans, steel and tin cans, most plastics, corrugated cardboard, yard waste and used motor oil. We have a drop-off and buy-back center and provide residential curbside, apartment and business collection services.
The City of Davis and Davis Waste Removal recycling program has received local, state and national awards for its efforts, including recognition from the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the National Recycling Coalition.
