“Purchasing locally, building sustainable infrastructure, and reinvesting back into the communities we serve.”

Making a Difference


We have an obligation to support local community initiative in the places we live and work. We feel honored to do our part in making the Central Valley a better place to live, work, and play. To us, that is the true meaning of “Locally Owned and Operated.”


MVD possesses the experience, financial resources, local infrastructure, and capital assets to seamlessly implement services. Mid Valley Disposal is continuously reinventing itself to match the needs of its customers.


By expanding services, winning competitive bids, and making strategic acquisitions, MVD has grown from a one (1) truck operation in 1997 to over one hundred and sixty (160) collection vehicles today.

Company Expansion

Expanding Operations

MVD’s Material Recovery Facility is equipped with state-of-the-art sorting lines installed in 2017. The only one of its kind in the Valley, the system uses the most up to date sorting technology to achieve the best possible diversion in the industry. The Company also expanded operations to include a state of the art in-vessel composting facility. To ensure community acceptance through the reduction of odors and preservation of air quality, MVD built a covered composting solution. This advanced technology will allow MVD to assist its customers with achieving state mandated requirements. MVD prides itself in keeping its promises. MVD sees its connection to the local community and local businesses as the foundation to its own sustainability and growth.
