Specific actions taken in waste reduction include recycling beverage containers of nearly 400lbs per month. Actively removing cardboard from trash bins in favor of a recycling bin. Yard waste of grass clippings, tree trimming, and leaves are mulched and returned to the soil. Purchasing office and janitorial supplies containing recycled material where available. Reducing dependency on disposable dishes, utensils, and cups in the break room. Reducing paper usage by increasing electronic communication, printing two sided, and reusing scrap paper in arts and crafts projects at the nature center and ranger campfire programs.

AB 341 & 1826

With the passage of AB341 Mandatory Commercial Recycling  and AB1826 Mandatory Organics Recycling, California is one of the first states in the nation to enact a statewide program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste and organics from landfills.

Recyclable material types can include, but are not limited to: paper, plastics, glass, metals, cardboard, green waste, food waste, and construction and demolition materials. While significant commercial recycling already occurs, much of the commercial sector waste disposed in landfills is clean enough to be recycled.

Organic wastes are recyclable through composting and mulching, and through anaerobic digestion, which can produce renewable energy. In an effort to achieve California's recycling and greenhouse gas emission goals, in 2016, the State began implementing AB 1826 Legislation (Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling) in a tiered approach..
