Construction and Demolition Services

Our temporary C&D services are ideal for a variety of short-term projects. Whether it’s clearing your garage for better space usage or a more complex project such as new home construction, we perform the task at hand with absolute professionalism and to your exact specifications. NASA will also ensure compliance with all local and state recycling mandates for C&D materials.

A 3 yard dumpster is the best choice for projects including construction, commercial, and residential jobs. A temporary bin is the ideal option for small home remodeling jobs and garage cleanups, not heavy construction debris, such as brick, concrete, and sand.

Manure Collection

NASA is a firm believer in recycling as much as possible; therefore, we offer special collection and recycling of horse manure and bedding. Working with a local facility, all materials are composted rather than disposed of in a landfill. Research has shown that composting this material provides the following benefits:

  • 100% of animal waste is recycled
  • reduces flies and their larvae
  • kills parasites and pathogens
  • reduces odors
  • kills weed seeds
  • evens out grazing patterns
  • protects water quality

Contact NASA Services for more information on bin sizes and prices for manure collection.

Special Wastes

There are many items that may not be placed in your trash, recycle or green waste bins.

These include items such as construction debris, large bulky items, electronic wastes, hazardous wastes, motor oil and medical wastes. To help you dispose of these materials, please review the following information.

Proper Paint Disposal – Proper disposal and recycling of paint is the LAW in California. Paint may not be disposed of in the trash or down the drain. Unused paint may NOT be ‘dried-out’ in an open container due to strict air quality regulations. Drop-off sites are located throughout California for the collection and reuse/recycling of paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings in 5-gallons or less.

To locate a drop-off near you, visit:

Motor Oil – It is illegal to improperly dispose of used motor oil. It may only be disposed of at a certified collection point.
