A new video released by Recology follows the journey of food scraps from curbside green bins to compost facilities to local farms.

The 3-minute video, titled “Back to the Core: A Compost Story”, highlights how curbside composting reduces landfill gas emissions, returns carbon to the soil, and helps farms grow healthy food and save water.



Working together, Recology and the cities and customers we serve pioneered curbside food scrap collection for composting. Now cities around the world are following our lead and implementing curbside composting programs.

The video answers the question: Where do the compostable materials we place in our green bins go? Spoiler alert: They help grow fresh fruits and veggies that come back to our kitchen tables.
