Escondido AD Facility is First in Southern California
On November 28, 2018, the Recycling and Waste Reduction Division first presented the Organics Recycling Program information to the Escondido City Council.
In addition to outlining state mandates requiring organics recycling, it included plans from the City’s franchised waste hauler, Escondido Disposal, to build an anaerobic digestion facility in Escondido. While construction is not complete, the two green tubes are prepared to receive residential green waste beginning February 1, 2021.
If you live in Escondido, you can now put food waste in the green cart with your yard waste. To learn more about the state-of-the-art facility or how to dispose of food waste, please visit the EDI website:
