Separating And Why It Matters
Landfills are the third largest source of Methane emissions in California. Organics like food scraps, yard trimmings, paper, cardboard, and liquid waste make up half of what Californians dump in landfills. Landfills emit 20% of the state’s methane, a climate super pollutant 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide, and air pollutants like PM 2.5, which contributes to health conditions like asthma. By separating organic waste out we can offset the amount of Methane that is released and create more health soil.
Liquids waste that is mixed with recyclables add more effort and cost to remove so they can be reused. Many cannot be reused due to some liquid waste ruining the recyclables. Separating liquids will help add more to what can be recycled.
For those that have Weight-based Trash collection programs, liquid waste adds unnecessary expense to waste collection bills. By removing the liquids from trash bins, many can save a significant amount of money. Without liquids, the bags of trash custodians lift from containers are lighter, which will reduce the amount of worker’s compensation claims from back and spine injuries.
