Easy and Beneficial Recycling

Waste Facts

Organic waste accounts for more than a third of California’s waste stream. If organic waste is landfilled, it starts decomposing and generating methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times worse than COthat makes a significant contribution to global warming.

Therefore We Recycle

That’s a great reason to recycle: by recycling our organic and green waste we can reduce greenhouse emissions. It also helps create a more sustainable economy by generating climate-friendly energy and valuable fertilizers for our farmers and growers.

How Can You Help?

You can help by collecting your organic waste separately. Here are some easy tips to make the most of your green waste bin.

Tip no. 1:

Don’t waste money on compostable baggies. Just put your organic waste directly into your green bin.

Tip no. 2:

Did you know you can put all sorts of organic waste in your green bin? Leaves, grass clippings, produce trimmings… and SO much more.
