Rexius has been involved in processing yard waste for many years. We have been active in the Lane County Yard Debris Task Force Committee since its inception in 1991 and have been involved in the Power Resource Citizens’ Advisory Group as well. Company representatives have also been active in an Oregon DEQ work group drafting rules for commercial composters in Oregon, and serving on the board of the US Composting Council.
We have operated our own collection/processing sites in addition to providing yard waste grinding services since 1993. One of our goals for the recycling program is to divert additional volumes from the landfill into the recycling program. Recently, Rexius has joined with local waste haulers and the City of Eugene to establish a food waste collection and composting effort. The City's "Love Food Not Waste" program was formed and Rexius participates in the production and distribution of finished food waste compost for them.
Our Recycling Center is now at the new Landscape Supply Center:
