Greetings and Happy Spring to everyone in our community! 

Here's what's been happening in our world:  
Please Welcome Three New Employees to the Vision Recycling Management Team! 
Erik Martig has joined  Vision Recycling this month as Fleet Manager in charge of equipment and vehicles for the company. Before joining Vision, Erik lived in New York City for 7 years.  He holds a BS in Landscape Architecture from Ohio State University and worked for several landscape design firms in NYC before pursuing his passion for composting.  From 2011 to 2015 he worked tirelessly on building capacity for food scrap composting in New York. His efforts resulted in an "Unsung Hero" award from SWANA (Solid Waste Association of North America).   

Derek Radau joined the Vision Recycling fleet team and has been settling in quite nicely since the end of last year. Derek is extremely hard working, competent and loyal. Before his arrival here Derek was a  lineman for Curtis Electric and installed high line wires and power poles. He enjoys  camping, hiking and outdoor activities as well as fast cars and motorcycles. Some tough challenges for him include troubleshooting equipment issues and fixing new problems on the engines. 

Andrea Contreras has joined the Admin team in the Fremont office this past month. She will be working with Laura and Janice handling accounts receivables, customer service and supporting the team any way she can. Before Vision, Andrea worked for MPP Union City handling reception and logistics in the manufacturing of boxes. Andrea has a family which keeps her real busy, but finds time to listen to music and to read. 
Vision Recycling's Benicia Store Welcomes the USCC Operator Training Class for a Tour.
On March 9th, the US Composting Council's Operator Training class made a stop at Vision's Benicia facility for a tour of the property. The class was there as part of a 4-day training program to become certified as compost operators. Forty students were led by Vision's very own Jimmy Dodd, Tom Del Conte and Adan Rodriguez. Part of the curriculum is to see actual compost facilities and on this day, the class visited Benicia on their last stop. It was a pleasure having them!

Your Go-To Mulch for Landscape Applications 
Vision Recycling's Wonder Mulch is made from ground up yard trimmings and some dimensional lumber.  The shredded material has a natural color that can be used as a ground cover and works well on hill sides.  The product also comes in Mahogany or Black and is a great substitute for dyed wood chip. These mulches have more green matter in their composition and provide better nitrogen to the soil than wood chips. For more information visit
