Shared from @regenmonterey:

✨ Monterey Regional Waste Management District is now... ReGen Monterey! ✨

The world has come a long way since the “Monterey Peninsula Garbage and Refuse Disposal District” was founded in 1951. By modern standards, the organization’s mission was minimal: provide one sanitary destination for trash, which in previous years had been dumped all over—including in the ocean.

But the ensuing decades brought great progress in understanding of the environment and how to protect it. That led to a crucial update of the District’s mission: Waste shouldn’t just be disposed of, but managed, with the aid of ever-advancing technology and techniques for recycling, reusing, and reducing it.

That shift was reflected in a new name: the Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD). For over seventy-years, the MRWMD has established a record of leadership in waste management, as seen in the cutting-edge Materials Recovery Facility, a greatly expanded composting operation, and other innovations.

Now, the organization’s mission is being updated again: from managing waste, to reducing it towards an eventual goal of zero. To express this third-generation mission for the organization, the District Board of Directors recently approved a new name and logo. Learn more about the rebrand at regenmonterey.org.

Driving past Locke-Paddon Park on Reservation Rd... It's a popular space for pedestrians, whether they are alone or with their four legged companions. 🐕 Have you taken a relaxing stroll on the Locke-Paddon trails, or maybe said hello to the various bird species that frequent the area? 🦆

You can also join Marina's Mayor @marinamayorbruce throughout the year as he and several volunteers work together to beautify the Oak Woodland Community Garden located within the park! 🌳

Repost from @mrwmd_org:

#MondayMotivation ♻️ Thank you for recycling properly in your blue bin. Download our What Goes Where app or visit whatgoeswhere.info to learn if a material is recyclable and how and where to recycle it in Monterey County.

With your help, and the hard work by our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) staff, we are turning waste into resources and working towards zero waste in our community. MRF staff and technology sort and distribute 2,800 tons a month of recyclables out to market. These bales are sent to processors to produce new products. Putting prohibited items in your recycling bin can put workers at risk, adds to the cost of recycling, and can reduce the value of other recyclables - thank you!
