VENTURA COUNTY, CALIF.–Stay Green, a full-service landscaping company, and Agromin  the organics recycler for more than 50 California cities, have formed a partnership that will recycle and reuse the organic materials produced by Stay Green clients. Agromin will turn the material into compost, mulch and soil enhancements for use in Stay Green landscaping projects.

Stay Green’s Sustainable Asset Protection Program (SAPP) views trees, plants and landscapes as assets.

 “By nurturing these assets through waste, water and plant management, we can extend their life and maximize customer property values,” says Chris Angelo, Stay Green president and CEO. “A layer of mulch cuts down on water usage. Compost and soil enhancements keep plants, lawns and trees healthy. These cost efficiencies save customers money while increasing the beauty of their home or business. By recycling green waste, we keep the material out of landfills where it would emit toxic carbon dioxide emissions. The program is not only beneficial to our clients, but also to our environment.”

Stay Green will begin installing recycling bins in its Ventura County locations. Agromin will then clean, grind and compost the materials at its facility in Oxnard.

“Ventura County is where our pilot program will take place because of the proximity to one of Agromin’s primary recycling sites,” says Michael Cardona, business developer for Stay Green in Ventura County. “We’ll then expand the program to Santa Clarita and the San Fernando Valley.”

“Stay Green’s sustainability effort is an example of how companies are moving toward zero waste output by closing the recycling loop,” says Bill Camarillo, president and CEO of Agromin. “Businesses see their zero waste efforts as making a positive impact on the environment. They also view waste as a potential resource. When they reduce and reuse their green waste, they can save money for themselves and their customers.”
