Local Taqueria Owner Wins Award for Implementing Landfill Diversion Program

Yesterday, Juan Carlos Vazquez, the owner of Alameda’s Taqueria Viva Mexico was presented with an award for implementing a commercial landfill diversion program at his restaurant. The award was sponsored by the Sierra Club Zero Waste Committee and the Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA), and presented by Miss Alameda Jessica Robinson.

According to Ms. Robinson, Taqueria Viva Mexico is now diverting 50% of its waste away from landfills and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 14 tons per year through recycling and composting. Residential waste diversion programs have been in place for years, but commercial programs have been slow to catch on. Robinson has kicked off a drive to encourage Alameda restaurants to participate in landfill diversion programs as part of her campaign for Miss California USA.
