Yard trimmings market gets a fresh look

Yard trimmings market gets a fresh look

BioCycle 39(1): 62-64

The mulching programme set up by Santa Barbara County, California, USA, is described. Since 1991, the county's Public Works Department has been processing yard trimmings and in 1997, implemented a yard and garden trimmings collection programme. To assure diversion of the material and generate revenue to offset processing costs, especially over the long-term, market research and development has been carried out by E&E Environmental Consultants for the mulch product.
