In 2011, Davis Street constructed an $11 million LEED™ (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold transfer building to manage organics material. Nearly 800,000 pounds of organic materials will pass through the building each day on route to composting facilities.
Currently, a portion of residential organics is sent to our WM EarthCare composting facility at the Redwood Landfill in Novato. Its Homegrown Compost is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for organic farming and carries the US Composting Council Seal of Testing Assurance. Watch the KQED video to see what happens after your organics leave the curb.
You play an important role in closing the loop on organics. It doesn’t stop at composting, but rather when you introduce soil-nourishing compost back in your garden. WM EarthCare Landscape Center located at Davis Street offers locally sourced and produced 100% recycled compost, mulch and soil blends for your yard. Click here to learn more about WM Earthcare.
