Zero Waste Crews
Our Zero Waste Crews provide various waste collection, management, and diversion services to keep material from the landfill while creating a positive experience for the young people on our crews.

Used Tire Collection
Tire Hauler – State of California, TPID # 1834406-01
As a certified and permitted waste-tire hauler, CCNB partners with local government agencies to identify public lands affected by illegally dumped tires and dispatch work crews to remove them responsibly.
Our crews also host tire amnesty collection events for the public throughout the year, where community members can bring their used tires to our events.

CCNB corpsmembers learn construction skills while building side-loading recycling bins that are customizable based on the budget and level of services needed by our clients.
Our durable, fire resistant bins are made from high quality recycled plastic lumber and come in single, dual, and triple stream options with security features designed to prevent pests and theft.
