The 2021 season was our biggest yet. With climate change worsening, fires are starting earlier and running longer. We started our first fire on July 3rd in Northern California, and our last fire wrapped up on November 3rd in Southern California. It was a busy summer, our teams were exhausted, but we made a huge impact and we feel so proud of our work! 

We recycled 164,660 pounds of material over the course of the summer. The primary materials we diverted from incidents include cardboard, plastic bottles, aluminum, wood, food waste, and alkaline batteries.

2019 WALKER FIRE - Taylorsville, CA

The Walker Fire in Taylorsville  was one of the biggest fires in Northern California in 2019. With over 2,000 facility and fire fighting personnel, Human Eco worked directly within the local communities to recycle over 40% of all materials generated. This included such items as plastic, paper, cardboard, aluminum and batteries. Human Eco organized a food donation program for the camp to donate all non-perishable foods within the nearby towns. As well as a donation for spent fire hose to a non-profit Hose2Habitat.

2019 LEFT HAND FIRE - Naches, WA

Human Eco collected plastic water bottles, cardboard, coffee cups, paper, batteries, aluminum and wood pallets and diverted 49% of waste from landfill. Priority was given to recyclers who processed materials locally, such as the paper, which was processed in Yakima for use in fruit trays. Pallets were repaired and reused locally as well.
