TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES & SIERRA CONSERVATION PROJECT AND MAMMOTH DISPOSAL EXPAND CONDOMINIUM & BUSINE

Town of Mammoth Lakes (TOML), The Sierra Conservation Project, Inc. (SCP) and Mammoth Disposal (MD) are excited to announce the expansion of current condominium, commercial and recreational area recycling programs in the Town of Mammoth Lakes. TOML, SCP and MD are working on a grant-funded project to expand condominium programs, and to increase and improve commercial recycling programs within the Town of Mammoth Lakes. 

SCP and MD are working in partnership with the Town of Mammoth Lakes and the Department of Recourses Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to provide convenient recycling opportunities for both visitors and residents of Mammoth Lakes.  Thanks to a $211,732 grant from CalRecycle, the project will be able to expand current condo programs by providing outdoor bear-proof recycling containers to condominium and apartment complexes.  SCP will also be expanding and improving their commercial recycling programs by upgrading their business recycling container fleet to bear proof models. Mammoth Disposal will utilize funds to purchase equipment to increase efficiency at their recycling center in Mammoth Lakes. The aim of the project is to provide the bear-proof containers and other equipment necessary to launch successful recycling programs within the community that benefits our guests, residents and wildlife.

Town of Mammoth Lakes, Sierra Conservation Project and Mammoth Disposal will work in partnership to ensure the growth and success of this program.  Brian Robinette, owner of SCP, emphasized the need for convenient recycling programs that serve our local residents and visitors.

“Recyclable materials make up a large percentage of the waste produced in our residential complexes and businesses," Robinette said. "We have about 100 condo complexes here in Mammoth that have had great success with our condo recycling programs. This project will allow us to provide the expensive bear proof containers to the remaining complexes town that don’t currently have a recycling program in place. It is our goal to bring all complexes in town into compliance with recycling requirements under state and local laws.” 

Robinette explained “I am excited to have the opportunity to help grow and improve the already successful business recycling system here in town; our goal is to upgrade to all bear proof containers at restaurants, bars and other business locations.  We will also focus on expanding to new businesses and providing existing business participants with updated equipment and educational materials. These programs are a great opportunity to divert recyclable materials from our local landfill. We are confident that providing start-up infrastructure for these complexes and businesses will help make program implementation affordable and reduce the environmental impacts of each resident & guest.”
