Yolo landfill exhibit wins Blue Ribbon at county fair

On opening day of the Yolo County Fair, judges announced the Yolo County Department of Community Services, Integrated Waste Management Division’s exhibit won first place for its value in community service.

Sticking with the fair’s theme of “80 Years of Fun”, Yolo County, alongside the recycling staff from jurisdictional partners (Cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland) showcased how 80 years of recycling programs throughout the county and at the landfill have made Yolo County more sustainable. The exhibit allows fairgoers to learn about the many ways recycling has changed throughout the decades, identify source reduction programs in their community and participate in a recycling trivia display board.

Most notably, Waste Management, Inc. and Davis Waste Removal, Inc. curbside carts fill the booth highlighting the various programs in Yolo County communities and the recent roll out of organics food waste composting in Davis and Clarksburg.

“Winning a blue ribbon in the category of community service demonstrates our landfill’s commitment to environmental education and sustainability programs,” said Yolo County Department of Community Services Director Taro Echiburú. “We have a lot to be proud of and are honored to be recognized by the Yolo County Fair in this way.”
