Happy Earth Day from Waste Management

WM Earth Day

It is very heartening to see the region taking all the positive steps of making our way out of the pandemic that devastated much of the globe in 2020. As numerous stay-at-home orders, quarantines, and similar restrictions were enforced globally in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you won’t be surprised to hear that garbage produced by households increased and recycling went down with higher contamination. Not to mention the uptick of littering and illegal dumping in the nation. 

In Nevada County however, there is good news around the topic of recycling. A good number of our residents and businesses are very conscious about the environment and are making strides in recycling correctly, recovering edible food, composting, creating self-sustaining practices and reducing waste overall.

Here are some ways Waste Management would like to encourage your participation in protecting our environment, not just during earth week April 19th – April 23rd, but all year round:

  1. Enjoy these wonderful resources to help you find out more about how to Recycle right!
