In Nevada County, nearly 28 percent of trash collected contains organic waste (also known as food and yard waste). Currently, that food waste ends up in a landfill. In some communities, residents and businesses have an additional cart where they place their food waste, or combine their food waste with their green waste.
A number of residents and businesses have expressed interest in adding organic waste collection services in Nevada County. Before proceeding with any action related to implementing an organic waste program, Nevada County is interested in assessing the effect of a potential program on businesses and residents.
