Composting, Saving Water & Creating Green Jobs

Did you know that the US’s first comprehensive urban organics collection was pioneered by Recology?

By composting yard trimmings and food scraps, Recology helps ensure that organic material is put to the best and highest use possible. Last year alone they composted 1.1 billion lbs of yard trimmings and food scraps, sold 296 million pounds of compost in California, ultimately saving 16,500 gallons of water per acre with compost use.

They recognize that every ton of organics sent to the landfill is a missed opportunity to create green-economy jobs, recover raw material, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and save water.
