Republic Services is known as industry leader in recycling and waste disposal. But people may not realize that Republic is also a leader in composting – in California, Oregon and other markets in the West.
This week is International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW), and for the first time Republic Services is an official sponsor. ICAW is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry.
May 1 - 7 2016 was #InternationalCompostAwarenessWeek. DYK? 95% of the food we throw away ends up in landfills or combustion facilities and could be composted instead (EPA). Our Pacific Region Compost facility is one of the largest in the northwestern United States.
