To CR&R every trash, organics and recycling container holds unique treasures.
Organics we collect can be diverted from ending up in our landfills and transformed into new products which breathe new life into the product life cycle. Our composting facilities in San Juan Capistrano and Lakeside, California enable us to turn lawn clippings, leaves, plants and other household or business green waste into rich compost. Through composting, we are able to return Mother Nature’s nutrients back to the earth. It’s an enriching idea that helps us to minimize the impact on our environment.
But today, composting is giving way to new technologies which exponentially multiply the positive impacts we can have on our environment. That is why CR&R has embarked on a state of the art technology called Anaerobic Digestion. After over a decade of research and development, CR&R is under construction on its new Anaerobic Digester (AD) in Perris, California. This new facility will take our organic waste (i.e. food waste, yardwaste and compostable materials) and convert them to a renewable natural gas (RNG) and a high grade fertilizer. The RNG we produce will be the cleanest fuel available in California and will help to fuel our fleet of natural gas vehicles. In addition, the rich soil amendment produced by our AD Facility can be used by farmers, landscapers and other garden lovers. The new Anaerobic Digester will not only return Mother Nature’s nutrients back to the soil but it will also allow us to be energy independent by providing fuel for our collection vehicles.
