Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

In California, it's the law to recycle.  Our cities and counties are required to divert at least 50 percent of their trash away from landfills, whether through waste reduction, reuse or recycling programs.  Waste Management is a proud partner with communities all around the state to help them achieve this goal.


It's important for all of us to play a part in helping our communities keep materials out of landfills.  If each and every resident were to lead by example, our diversion rate would go up - and we would recoup other tangible benefits as well.  We would conserve space in our landfills, which in turn preserves open space, saves money on purchased goods and guards our natural resources for our children and grandchildren.
