Sustainability Goals

Community Engagement

Considering our sustainability goals, the communities that we work with are such an important part of the overall impact we have as a company. We understand that support is very helpful when trying to understand how to have the best recycling practices. Therefore, Mid Valley Disposal has an outreach team focused on making sure everyone is in the loop on how to do their part.

Recent Trends

Outreach Overview

It is important to us to be available to the community as a way to help keep the public informed about the recent trends in recycling.

Training Sessions

We understand implementing new recycling & composting programs can be a difficult transition for some groups and companies. Which is why we offer trainings that will be specific to your operations and waste stream.

Community Events

Community events are a great opportunity for us to provide educational resources that will guide the public towards successful recycling, as well as properly disposing of other types of materials, like hazardous waste, electronics, and sharps.


Presentations are available for any club, school, non-profit group, or organization within the communities we serve. We provide an in depth look at how our recyclables and compostables are sorted and processed from containers to the truck, and all the way through our facilities.
