Description: This case study describes how the City of Burbank partnered with its hauling company and a grower to implement a highly successful green material diversion and composting public education program. This has resulted in adding nutrient value to sandy agricultural soils, producing 500 pounds of compost a year from 4,000 backyard compost projects, and extending the 50-year life expectancy of their landfill.
