Republic Services' drivers collect your organics separately and take it to one of two preprocessing facilities. Here, contaminants are separated out and the remainder is pulverized into a thick slurry. The material is then takern to one of two composting facilities. Using a variety of processes including windrow composting and covered aerated static pile composting, organic material is processed into compost. This compost is then given back to the community at Alhambra Recycles Events and can be used in gardens as nutrient-rich soil additive!
