About WM EarthCare™
WM EarthCare™ is closing the loop on organic materials in northern California. Through our parent company, USA Waste of California, Inc., we process more than a thousand tons of yard trimmings, food scraps and clean lumber debris daily in Alameda, Butte, Marin, San Clara, and San Joaquin counties.
Our conveniently located WM EarthCare Landscape Centers provide the added benefit of lowering the carbon footprint of our consumers. We integrate our hauling operations to deliver recycled product efficiently with the least associated carbon emissions. Plus, we work with third-party haulers to provide local delivery options.
Our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions begins when we collect organic materials for recycling. Nearly 100 of our vehicles run on bio-liquefied natural gas (LNG), the lowest carbon fuel available. We produce bio-LNG locally at our Altamont Landfill (www.altamontlandfill.wm.com) in Livermore, CA. Bio-fuel is produced from landfill gas, a natural by-product of decomposing organic waste. By converting landfill gas to bio-fuel, we are closing the loop on existing waste in the landfill.
