Like people (as well as dogs, cows, wild burros and a few other things), plants get thirsty. Nevada gardening in a heat wave during a drought when you’re trying to save water presents a conflict.

A recent press release from Waste Management and the Atlantis states that in 2012 the casino resort was able to beat their goals for food waste recycling through composting:
“Atlantis diverted 1,500 yards of food waste material, exceeding their goal by 56 percent. Through this program, food scraps and other organic material were separated and diverted from the traditional waste stream, and processed into compost.”
This is a great accomplishment and just the beginning for the recycling of organic materials through composting in the Northern Nevada area! The ability for businesses to make a difference in a state that has yet to set up standardized recycling regulations is very commendable.
