Almost everything created in this world can become something new many times before it is discarded forever.
CARTM Recycling promotes sustainable living and artistic expression through the creative re-use of materials. We collect our community’s ‘discards’ and sort it into reusable items, recyclable materials and finally, trash. We make the good stuff available to become new again — as art, as building materials or furniture and as raw materials for new packaging.
CARTM collected over 809 tons of recyclable materials in 2011 — that’s a 15% increase over 2010!
CARTM shipped 290.3 tons of solid waste to the landfill in 2011—3% less than in 2010. North County citizens and visitors diverted 809.6 tons of material from the landfill in 2011 for recycling at CARTM—a 15% increase over 2010 (excluding wood and construction debris which CARTM subcontracted in 2010).
