Mountain Rose Herbs Wins Trashbuster Award

The Lane County Board of Commissioners has honored Mountain Rose Herbs for their extensive companywide recycling and composting program, selecting the organic herb supplier for the 2010 Product Manufacturer Trashbuster Award. Each year, individuals, businesses, and organizations in Lane County are recognized for exemplary waste reduction efforts as part of National America Recycles Day, held on November 15th. Organizers of the Trashbuster Awards were impressed by the level of commitment the Eugene based company has shown to reducing waste produced through their daily operations. The herbal products manufacturer has implemented innovative procedures to create a successful Zero Waste facility by recycling, re-using, composting, or reclaiming materials that are typically regarded as trash. Mountain Rose Herbs went from producing 3,300 gallons of waste per month, a normal amount for a processor, to about 80-100 gallons per month within a few years of starting their waste recovery program.
