Waste Management (WM) is partnering with Santa Clarita artist Julianne Haness in a campaign to recycle organic waste.
The campaign aims to prepare residents to divert their organic waste from landfills by applying Haness’ designs to reusable household items such as dishcloths and tote bags.
The project comes in response to California Senate Bill 1383 that requires Santa Clarita residents to sort and recycle their green and food waste.
“We have worked hard to prepare for SB 1383, preparing technology, systems and facilities for organics recycling,” said Ashley Cortes, public sector manager for WM of Santa Clarita. “This artistic collaboration is a fun way to engage residents in the upcoming changes to their services.
Haness is a 10-year Santa Clarita resident and pattern maker, who spent eight years managing community recycling programs before deciding to focus full-time on her artistic career.
“I hope the residents enjoy the designs as much as I enjoyed creating them,” Haness remarked. “Every project is a learning opportunity, and I’m excited that my work can help others learn more about sustainability.”
Haness’ patterned kitchen towels and tote bags are set to be distributed by WM at local events throughout the community, including the KHTS Home and Garden Show taking place April 30 and May 1 in Central Park. .
While there are no immediate changes to residential services at this time, WM would like to remind residents to recycle properly – keeping trash, plastic bags and plastic wraps out of recycling and waste containers. of garden.
“We’ve been helping Santa Clarita residents recycle for over twenty years. By working together, we can make this new organic waste law an easy and positive transition for the community,” Cortes added.
