Recycling Organics into Resources

 Registration is closed for this event
Encinitas’s organic waste stream is about to be revolutionized and we need you to get involved! Starting in early 2021, EDCO will be launching its state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion facility that will turn our organic waste into valuable resources. This webinar gives residents the chance for a first sneak peek at the exciting new facility as we sit down with EDCO’s General Manager, Jim Ambroso.

In this 1-hour webinar, you will get the inside scoop on the region's new anaerobic digester facility and why it is such a game changer for local sustainability. In a landfill, our organic waste releases potent greenhouse gasses, but with EDCO’s organic curbside service, this waste can instead be recycled into a sustainable energy source, and create fertilizer and compost to help us build healthier soil. Join us in turning organic waste into valuable resources!

This is a chance for the community to learn how to participate in this exciting new program, and hear directly from an EDCO program champion, Jim Ambroso.

This webinar will cover the following:

  • What is an Anaerobic Digester.
  • Why it is a big step towards local sustainability.
  • What you can send to the new facility.
  • How will the material be collected.
