Tech Talk: Energize Your Waste! Curbside Organics Recycling and the City of La Mesa
In early 2021, EDCO began the roll out of a state-of-the-art organics recycling plant, known as an Anaerobic Digestion Facility. This facility will turn La Mesa’s organic waste into renewable natural gas and fertilizer – but how? Join I Love A Clean San Diego and the City of La Mesa for a virtual sit down with EDCO General Manager, Carl Scherbaum, as we talk all things Anaerobic Digestion.
Are biodegradable plastics accepted? What are some tips for keeping your food collection bin clean? Find out these answers and more as we dive into the science behind the digester, why it is important, and how it relates to La Mesa. Afterwards, Mr. Scherbaum will be answering attendee questions live. Registration is free and open to all. Please register here for the link to join.
