The Orange County Recycling Market Development Zone (OC RMDZ) is an economic development program that utilizes the growing supply of recyclable materials to fuel new businesses, expand existing ones, create jobs, and divert waste from landfills. The program fosters and supports eligible businesses that supply or utilize secondary materials; creating a circular economy and enhancing the County's economic development potential.
The total number of businesses within the County is 1,381,148, with projected economic growth expected to add 56,500 jobs by 2017. The County's economy has 13.2 percent centered on manufacturing and 14 percent centered on waste management services. It is projected that industrial production will grow at an average rate of 2.5 percent each year. The Cities of Huntington Beach, Stanton, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, and Orange all have industrial clusters accessible by six freeways (SR-22, SR-405, SR-55, SR-57, SR-91, and SR-5).
