Why is it important to recycle food waste and green waste in Orange County?

Organic waste accounts for more than one third of the material in California’s waste stream. Greenhouse gas emissions caused by the decomposition of organic material in landfills contribute to global climate change. Reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfills is an important goal of California. 

Collecting and processing organic materials, particularly food, in order to meet new mandates, will change how Californians manage waste within our homes.
