COUNTY, CALIF. (Oct. 29, 2012)--Stay Green, a full-service landscaping company, and Agromin,
the organics recycler for more than 50 California cities, have formed a
partnership that will recycle and reuse the organic materials produced by Stay
Green clients. Agromin will turn the material into compost, mulch and soil
enhancements for use in Stay Green landscaping projects.
Stay Green's Sustainable Asset Protection Program (SAPP)
views trees, plants and landscapes as assets. "By nurturing these assets
through waste, water and plant management, we can extend their life and
maximize customer property values," says Chris Angelo, Stay Green
president and CEO. "A layer of mulch cuts down on water usage. Compost and
soil enhancements keep plants, lawns and trees healthy. These cost efficiencies
save customers money while increasing the beauty of their home or business. The program is not only beneficial to our
clients but also to our environment."
Stay Green will begin installing
recycling bins in its Ventura County locations. Agromin will then clean, grind
and compost the materials at its facility in Oxnard. "Ventura County is where our pilot program will
take place because of the proximity to one of Agromin's primary recycling sites,"
says Michael Cardona, business developer for Stay Green in Ventura County.
"We'll then expand the program to Santa Clarita and the San Fernando
Green's sustainability effort is an example of how companies are moving toward
zero waste output by closing the recycling loop," says Bill Camarillo, president
and CEO of Agromin. "Businesses see their zero waste efforts as making a
positive impact on the environment. They also view waste as a potential
resource. When they reduce and reuse their green waste, they can save money for
themselves and their customers."
