Our history

Northern Recycling & Waste Services is a family owned and locally operated full-service recycling and solid waste company. Together with our sister companies we have serviced the region for over a century. We are pleased to provide Paradise and unincorporated Butte County with efficient, economical, and sustainable services with
world class customer service.

We believe that properly managing our solid waste is a fundamental ecological issue. It illustrates, perhaps more clearly than any other environmental impact, that we must change many of our traditional habits and the cultural manner in which we manage our waste. Our mission is to eliminate waste, reuse and recycle all resources, provide objective education and quality service. It's our Planet, let's support it.

Being a local independent company, NRWS has a local customer service and billing department that can respond quickly to any questions or concerns that our customers might have.

Our entire team lives in Butte County, allowing us to make decisions quickly and decisively, to react to our customers changing needs.
