As Beverly Hills moves forward into 2020, so too do the City’s goals for limiting the amount of trash that winds up in landfills.
According to Gary Clifford, Executive Vice President of Athens Environmental Services, which last November was awarded an eight-year contract extension to provide single stream commercial and multi-family garbage services for the City, Beverly Hills is on track to divert at least 60 percent of what is collected from landfills.
“We really have to promote using less,” the City’s Director of Public Works Shana Epstein told the Courier. From educating people to reducing their usage of plastic water bottles (Epstein highlighted that the water that comes from taps in Beverly Hills is “perfect” for drinking) to encouraging businesses to move away from single-use plastics, Beverly Hills continues to move forward in helping residents and businesses to take steps that actively support environmental sustainability.
