STOP THE EVICTION!
Kezar Gardens Ecology Center is a place where recycling, gardening, native plants, and people come together in amazing ways. Under threat of eviction by the RECREATION and PARKS department of San Francisco for unfounded claims, Kezar Gardens hopes to use this blog as a space to educate, inform and demonstrate their positive social impact to the world.

THE BOTTLE BILL-WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU.
The California Bottle Bill (AB2020) mandates that CRV recycling be available within areas where large amounts of beverage containers are sold, like supermarkets and grocery stores. The deposit paid on each container by the consumer is returned to them when they participate in this system. Recycling with a blue bin does not return deposits paid by the consumer. The Bottle Bill is the most successful recycling initiative ever created in California. It holds both beverage companies and individuals accountable for the materials they use to consume certain beverages. Participate in this system by visiting your local recycling center. You will be amazed at the community you find there. And know, even if Kezar Gardens is evicted, recycling will continue in this area, as mandated by State law. San Francisco is one of the cities least served by recycling centers. Across the state, there is approximately 1 center for 18,000 people. In SF there is 1 center for every 44,000 people.
