Our History
Robert and Donna Bath (c. 1965)

In 1965, Robert and Donna Bath founded Advance Disposal Company with only two trucks. As the City of Hesperia grows, so does Advance Disposal in order to meet the community’s needs. In 1992, the state mandated recycling laws requiring cities to reduce their total waste stream by 25% by January 1st. The state has expanded these laws to 50% by 2000 and 75% by 2020. To meet these diversion requirements, city-wide mandatory trash pickup was also established.  With this in mind, Advance Disposal Company constructed the first Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in San Bernardino County. The City of Hesperia continues to meet or exceed the 75% landfill diversion rate that will be implemented in 2020. Advance Disposal is now a 3rd generation family owned and operated business working together with the City, School District and community.
