California Waste Services LLC (CWS) is an independently owned company that began operations in 1999 to provide superior customer service to the Greater Los Angeles market.
CWS began operations solely as a roll-off dumpster hauling company. Within a short period of time, the owners realized that to remain relevant in the future would require integration of recycling of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste. In the late 1990s, California State Assembly Bill 939 (AB939) — which mandated 50 percent of a municipality's waste stream must be diverted from sanitary landfills — was winding its way though the State Legislature.
Once the bill passed, recycling became state law. CWS was one of only a handful of dumpster hauling companies to immediately act upon this development and take action. In year 2000, CWS opened the first C&D processing facility in Southern Los Angeles County.
The Gardena/Harbor Gateway facility remains our only location and includes our corporate offices, maintenance facility and equipment storage area.
