In 2014, Marin Sanitary Service conducted a waste characterization study to find out what was being collected in residential landfill carts. The study found that less than half of the material collected was classified as ”true garbage.” Approximately 38% of the material could have been placed in the compostables cart.

Please help us in diverting compostable material such as yard and food waste away from landfill and into compost where it belongs!
