The Zero Waste Committee of the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter has concluded Phase One of a survey to determine current and planned organic material management practices for the incorporated cities of Los Angeles County and Orange County.  The intent of this survey is to produce findings that accurately represent, to the best of our ability, the state of organic material management in the two counties.
