Recycling and Composting at Home
Many communities in California now offer curbside collection or drop-off sites for certain recyclable materials.  Collecting materials is only the first step toward making the recycling process work.  Successful recycling also depends on manufacturers making products from recovered materials and, in turn, consumers purchasing products made of recycled materials.  Do your part--"close the loop" and buy products made of recycled materials whenever possible.

To discover the many different and innovative ways to recycle, please take a look the
Recycling Fact Sheets and Composting information to find out how easy it is to recycle and compost at your own home. Composting harnesses the natural process of decomposition by turning organic matter (such as grass clippings, leaves, fruit and vegetable wastes, and some animal manures) into a useful soil amendment for your landscape or garden. Composting can also improve hard, depleted soils by increasing the organic humus, so that flowers, vegetables, and fruit trees can thrive in a nutrient-rich environment. Adding compost to your soil will boost fertility and increase moisture-holding capabilities, if needed.
