Green Corona

Green Corona - Information for our residentsGreen Corona

The City of Corona is involved in a number of projects to reduce energy costs, lower our carbon footprint, and extend natural resources.  We promote, encourage and participate in local recycling efforts, host regular Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events, and work with surrounding agencies in leveraging resources to capitalize on our combined environmental innovation.





The City of Corona is a proud GOLD Energy Level Leader in standing partnership with the Community Energy Partnership (CEP).  The City's GOLD Level is a result of substantial and sustained energy savings in its municipal facilities and throughout the community.
