Recycling Market
Development Zone

The Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ) program combines recycling with economic development to fuel new businesses, expand existing ones, create jobs, and divert waste from landfills.

The RMDZ is in the valley portion of the nation’s largest county (by area) and includes unincorporated communities and the cities of Colton, Montclair, Rancho Cucamonga, Rialto, San Bernardino, Yucaipa, and parts of Ontario. This zone—just 50 miles east of the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach—encompasses 400 square miles with 29,000 manufacturing-related jobs. Our business-friendly environment and unwavering support for industrial uses and manufacturers makes the San Bernardino County RMDZ an ideal location for recycling-based businesses.
