Reunity Resources is a non-profit organization with a zero waste mission–it’s our goal to reunite our waste streams with value for our community. We are dedicated to educating about, implementing and promoting zero waste programs.
Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them. Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health. (ZWIA)
Through our Biofuel Collective, we collect used cooking oil from local restaurants, recycle it into ASTM-certified biodiesel and then redistribute clean, renewable fuel to northern New Mexico. Please visit our Partners in Sustainability page and support our local restaurants who are donating their oil for environmentally-friendly fuel.
We are currently implementing a commercial compost pilot program for launch in early 2014. The City of Santa Fe approved a professional services agreement on November 13, 2013, authorizing Reunity Resources to begin collecting food scraps from businesses within City Limits and turning the discarded organic material into nutrient rich compost.
