On Friday, June 30, EDCO, in partnership with the City of Escondido, will unveil its new “On the Road to Zero Waste” comingling recycling facility and administrative offices located on Mission Avenue in Escondido.
The 70,000-square foot facility is the newest in the country, and can process 100,000 pounds of commingled recycling every hour. Up to 520 billion pounds of material can be diverted from landfills thanks to this process.
“We are thrilled that through our investment in the newest, state of the art recycling facility in the country, EDCO will continue to support the region in achieving zero waste goals” said Steve South, President and Chief Executive Officer of EDCO. “With the opening of the initial phases of the facility, we have laid the groundwork to create a true resource recovery facility on the road to zero waste.”
