Clearlake targets blight through universal service

Clearlake was one of the few cities in the State not to require garbage collection service. Not only did that put the City at risk of being fined by the State for potentially not meeting state requirements for landfill diversion of recycling, Clearlake also was experiencing the detrimental visible results evidenced by numerous illegal garbage dump sites throughout the city.

Working with Clearlake Waste Solutions, the city will implement universal solid waste collection service on April 1, 2018. Universal collection should greatly reduce the number of illegal dump sites and, therefore, the number of garbage and debris related code enforcement actions. This will help meet the goal of making Clearlake a visibly cleaner city, and allowing Code Enforcement to focus on other issues critical to the health of the community.

C&S Waste Solutions now an energy neutral site

C&S Waste Solutions of California (C&S) recently installed solar energy panels at their California headquarters in Ukiah. C&S selected West Coast Solar to deploy a fully-integrated solar and storage project on the rooftops of buildings.

Estimated to generate 652.368 kwh per year, the new panels will generate enough power to classify the Ukiah campus as an “energy neutral site.” All power needed to operate the facilities will be generated by the new solar array.

“The decision to install solar was good for the environment as well as good business,” said C&S Waste Solutions of California President, Dave Carroll. “As a waste management company that is committed to sustainability, it only made sense to build that into our operational infrastructure.”

C&S Waste Solutions of California is a leading provider of comprehensive solid waste and recycling services throughout Lake and Mendocino Counties.
