Booth Education at Leucadia Farmers Market

Solana Center works alongside EDCO and the City of Encinitas to support the rollouts for new curbside organics recycling services. The new SB1383 ordinance requires all Southern California residents to divert their organic waste from the landfill, and EDCO waste hauling services now services our local community with their anaerobic digester to provide curbside organic waste pickup to all residents. 


Join us at our local Leucadia Farmers Market to help spread the word and educate residents about new curbside composting services. Many local residents may not yet understand the importance of organic waste diversion, or could use support with the transition to curbside composting – Solana Center is here to help! 

At the market, we speak with members of our local community to share resources, answer questions, and spread the word on this important new transition to curbside organics recycling. We also have exciting giveaway prizes for Encinitas Residents who take our recycling survey.  Come spend the day outside with us at our community outreach booth and talk organic waste diversion! 

This volunteer shift will consist of a few hours of

  • Being on your feet in the sun.
  • Lots of talking and interaction with the community through
    • answering questions
    • encouraging people to take our survey
    • handing out flyers
    • and sharing information about a few different services that Solana Center and ECDO offer
