67% of Central Contra Costa’s Food and Yard Waste is NOT being Recycled

67% of Central Contra Costa’s Food and Yard Waste is NOT being Recycled

Contra Costa residents are being duped. Despite their efforts to sort food waste and yard trimmings from the landfill, 67% of the material sorted at the curb ends up there anyway. If you live in the Central Contra Costa cities of Danville, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda or Walnut Creek, only one third of the yard clippings collected every week is actually being recycled and composted – the rest is being applied to landfills as Alternative Daily Cover (ADC) to cover garbage at local landfills where it rots and produces harmful greenhouse gasses rather than being composted into nutrient rich compost.
