Gilton Resource Recovery

Gilton Resource Recovery (GRR) is a state-permitted solid waste management facility that operates a transfer station that processes source separated organics and commingled recyclables, residential, commercial, industrial, and public haul refuse. With plans to expand into a high diversion Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), GRR will be positioned as the Central Valley’s premier solid waste facility that combines the operations of a transfer station, materials recovery facility, and organic waste composting. Doing this will allow GRR to not only accept more materials, but to recover and repurpose more materials from the waste stream and landfill, especially organics.

Material Recovery Facility

With plans to expand into a high diversion Material Recovery Facility (MRF), GRR will be positioned as the Central Valley’s premier solid waste facility by incorporating two distinct mechanical processing operations, one designed to separate Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and the other to recover organic materials. Both operations recover organics and recyclables from our residential and commercial generators.

Garbage & Mixed Materials (MSW)

The MSW operation is designed to process garbage and other mixed materials while maximizing the recovery of organics and recyclable material.

Source-Separated Organics (SSO)

The SSO operation is designed to process organic materials from our source-separated organic green cans and bins to ensure that the maximum amounts of organics are recovered and clean.


Organic Material Composting & Sales

GRR utilizes composting as a critical component in the management of organics. We are permitted to compost 471 tons/day or 170K tons/yr. We are one of only 35 compost facilities in California that can accept food. Our new composting facility gives the cities and counties we serve the assurance that they have secured capacity for their waste material.
