California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) 

Landscape Waste Prevention

Resource-Efficient Landscape Management

Initially, the purpose of these CIWMB (now known as CalRecycle) projects was to target regions in California generating the most grass, develop regional grasscycling promotional campaigns, and have at least one-half of the jurisdictions in the regions participating in the campaigns. Projects were expanded to include targeting urban communities and commercial landscapers who generate large amounts of green waste refuse.

CalRecycle supported a variety of projects to encourage residents and professional landscapers to use resource-efficient landscaping practices to reduce green waste, conserve water, and minimize non-point source pollution from urban landscapes.
