EDCO Waste and Recycling Services will apply for a major use permit for a green material processing, recycling, and composting facility this year. The facility would be located on a 197 acre site on Betsworth Road in Valley Center.
According to the North County Times, the facility would accept leaves, lawn clippings, brush, and other organic material that would otherwise go to landfills. EDCO expects that 406 tons of green material will be hauled to the site daily. EDCO currently plans to use covered, computer-monitored composting bins to turn the green waste into soil enriching products.
For more information about the proposed project see the full article by the North County Times here.
