Composting is incredibly exciting to us because it’s truly the most sustainable way to recycle organic material. Composting returns nutrients to the soil using organic materials that historically have been thrown away and landfilled. The Recology Organics team creates rich soil amendments from your food scraps and yard trimmings, providing farmers a sustainable way to grow food.
Today, compost created by Recology Organics is used by growers across California and Oregon.
Grocery Division & AB1826
The Recology Grocery Division provides large and small grocers throughout California with organics collection, hauling, staff trainings, and ongoing consulting to ensure compliance with regulatory standards, like the recent state mandate, AB 1826. This measure requires businesses and multi-family dwellings that generate 8-cubic yards or more of organic materials per week to arrange for organic recycling services.
The goal of the Recology Grocery Division is to help our grocers minimize food waste and instead compost unsold organic products in order to increase landfill diversion. Recology creates tailored programs that fit the needs of each store and management team.
