Americans produce more garbage per person than any other country in the world—but it doesn’t have to be that way. Solana Center offers information on how to divert waste through recycling and reuse.

EPS Food Container Alternative List
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) food containers from restaurants can break down and get into our waters, where they are very difficult to clean up. Prevent this pollution by using alternative food containers.
California State Waste Diversion Laws
California has comprehensive environmental regulations, and there are regularly new laws in the pipeline.
