CR&R is the parent company of Haulaway Storage Containers. CR&R has a rich history of innovative and environmentally friendly waste solutions like composting, bio filtering, anaerobic digestion, recycling and alternative fuels; CR&R was formed in 1963 by Clifford Ronnenberg.

In 1963, Stanton was a rural town with a few thousand residents. One day a community leader approached the Ronnenbergs to see if Clifford would consider a proposal to take over the city’s solid waste management contract. The business was a one-truck operation having trouble meeting its obligations. After careful consideration, Clifford agreed to purchase the business, and CR&R Incorporated was formed.

After several years of hard work and determination to build a successful solid waste business, Clifford realized there was an opportunity to develop a recycling operation that would complement his business. Within a few short years, CR&R became one of the largest recycling operations in California.

Orange County, as well as the greater Southern California area, continued to see exponential development throughout the 1960s and 70s and a transition from rural farming communities to a bustling metropolitan region. With Clifford’s construction background and an eye for spotting emerging trends, he identified a business opportunity to serve the burgeoning construction industry through the development of a portable storage container rental business. This resulted in the formation of Haulaway Storage Containers in 1968, a division of CR&R. Today, this company now has offices serving seven western states providing portable storage container needs for residential, construction, retail, schools, government, hospital, and office use.

Over ten years in development and at a cost of over $80 million, CR&R has now completed and is operating the first large scale anaerobic digestion facility located in Riverside County. This state-of-the-art facility produces renewable natural gas, soil amendments, and fertilizer by processing organic material collected from residential customers. The renewable natural gas produced is used to fuel CR&R’s fleet of over 1,000 vehicles with excess gas distributed and marketed through the use of the Southern California Gas Company’s system.

What started with one truck servicing one small rural city has grown to a fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles serving over 3 million residential and 50,000 business customers weekly. Today, CR&R is one of the nation’s largest privately held solid waste management companies.

“Heather is a dream to work with... friendly and professional, always on the ball, and always with a NO PROBLEM attitude. I work with her all the time and always rave about the customer service we receive!” -Rhonda 

“Great service! Carol is the best person to work with when you are having to have multiple locations and multiple containers being moved around. The drivers go above and beyond when it comes to getting the containers placed in the right spots. An example would be when you give these drivers maps to go by, they pull place the containers right where it goes and if does not look right to them in placement, they will contact me before doing anything and if I marked the map wrong, they are always helpful. Been working with these guys for over 10 years so would not go anywhere else.” - Josh

“I rented 20 ft Haulaway shipping container for storing of my house content during recent remodeling after researching extensively all vendors. It’s the best value in town. I was so impressed with the sturdiness and security of this container, practically impenetrable, and never felt that it was at risk of breaching.” -Vlad
