Restaurant Carts for Organics Diversion

Organics Recycling

The City is implementing a new organics program for Diamond Bar restaurants in order to divert food waste from the landfills and meet State mandates. 

Organic recycling helps to divert food waste which would normally end up in the landfills.  Restaurants can divert organic food waste which includes:  meat, bones, dairy, coffee grounds & filters, tea leaves & bags, egg shells, vegetables, fruit and green waste. 

With the use of a City grant, participating restaurants receive a dedicated indoor recycling bin to allow for the source separation of organic waste during the food prepping stages.  Using 96 gallon carts, the City’s commercial waste hauler Valley Vista Services will provide collection services, for a fee, at least once per week. The organic food waste is taken for processing to an anaerobic digester plant in Orange.      

As of June 1, the following restaurants are participating in the program: 

  • B.R.B
  • Dominos
  • Encore Teppan
  • Mr. Poke
  • Ni Ni Baker
  • Wabba Grill

Thank you to all the participating restaurants for making this a successful and sustainable program. If you own or work at a Diamond Bar restaurant, and would like to start an organics recycling program, contact the City's Environmental Services at 909-839-7015 or via email at greendb@diamondbarca.gov.
