Two of Albertsons Santa Barbara stores have reached “zero waste” classification in their daily operations. Through a combination of recycling programs, a food donation program and a joint organic composting program with the City of Santa Barbara, the two grocery stores now divert all non-contaminated waste from landfills and incinerators. In total, over 95% of all waste products from both stores are recycled, reused or composted — exceeding the 90% threshold commonly recognized as zero waste.
