Mandatory Organics Recycling for Village Operations Begins this Month
In accordance with Assembly Bill 1826, Laguna Woods Village will begin implementing a food-waste recycling initiative through Waste Management (WM) CORe program this month for Village operations. The CORe organic recycling process converts food waste into EBS, an organic slurry product used to generate green energy. Starting mid to late February, bins/carts for organic food waste will be placed at Clubhouses 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7, as well as at the Village Greens Restaurant and the Community Center break room.
This organics recycling program is for Village operations only and not for Residents.
Acceptable organics for recycling include all commercial food waste (meat, dairy, eggs, fish, fruits, vegetables and bakery items) and incidental amounts of plastic, metal, paper and cardboard. Unacceptable materials include glass, rubber, ropes, wires, polystyrene foam; cleaning supplies, chemicals, bulky items, trash; and wood and large amounts of yard waste.
