Why Should You Participate in Green Waste Recycling?

Green waste makes up about 33% of the trash that goes into Coachella Valley landfills. By recycling your green waste, you can dramatically reduce this burden on our landfills. And, recycling turns green waste into nutrient-rich compost for use in landscape projects. Please advise gardeners and landscapers to place grass clippings and tree trimmings into containers for recycling.
