Food Waste to Biogas Infrastructure Planning and Eco-Ambassador Program
Is your city interested in receiving FREE technical assistance to amplify resident outreach capacity for food waste recycling programs? Is your city interested in exploring options to plan and/or expand food waste to biogas infrastructure?
Assisting Southern California cities to prepare for the demands of AB-1826, SB-1383, and other environmental goals, Global Green’s experienced resource recovery team is now selecting two Southern California cities as partners to participate in a new food waste recycling program, using an Eco-Ambassador resident outreach model. The Eco-Ambassador program addresses urban infrastructure planning, local clean energy opportunities, and the long-term success of state policy goals.
Over a four-month implementation period, Global Green will guide each city in creating a sustainable resident outreach program that is specific to the city’s needs and objectives. The programs will address the interconnected issues of food waste and clean, renewable energy (i.e. biogas) in underserved communities. Global Green will train city staff to implement the program as a city-led program that continues beyond the four-month period of technical assistance and will host a stakeholder workshop with city leaders focused on expanding the adoption of food waste-to-biogas infrastructure.
Cities within SoCalGas’ service territory with access to food scrap collection services through their waste hauler(s) are eligible to apply for this opportunity.
