The City together with EDCO Waste & Recycling Services launched the new Organics Recycling Program on January 1, 2021. Poway residents are provided with up to three commingled green carts. Use your green cart to separate landscape waste, food scraps, and other organic materials for collection each week on your scheduled service day. The organic material collected will be taken to EDCO’s Anaerobic Digestion Facility in Escondido, California, to be converted into renewable natural gas and anaerobic compost. For more information regarding residential organics recycling visit EDCO's website.
