Mid Valley Disposal completed the installation of a GORE® Cover system pilot project on April 17, 2014. This system is provided and maintained by Sustainable Generation, LLC. Mid Valley Disposal is currently awaiting approval from the San Joaquin Valley APCD for a full-scale covered composting operation.
Chip Clements with Bobby Shriver at a recent event in Calabasas. With four of the five current supervisors termed out in the next two years, it is a new day for County leadership, and no one better to bring in a fresh voice and commitment to the environment, homelessness, and many other critical social issues than Bobby Shriver. It is rare that we have the chance to elect someone of his caliber and family pedigree. He has that Kennedy-Shriver dedication to public service and getting things done, and the ability to rally people around him. I think he will be terrific as the next LA County Supervisor of the 3rd District. Check out his website at: www.bobbyshriver.com
Clements is working on the design and installation of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) at several of its client facilities to bring them in compliance with NPDES discharge limits.
