Marin Recycler Joins Growing Green Business Group

Supporting California’s Clean Energy Economy and Marin’s Environmental Values

San Rafael, CA – Marin Sanitary Service (MSS) has joined the California BusinessmAlliance for a Green Economy, with its 1,000-plus members across the state, to support businesses, policies and standards in California that share the Marin recycler’s commitment to a cleaner, more efficient world. “Being a clean efficient business reduces our carbon footprint and improves our bottom line. That’s why our truck fleet is one-hundred percent clean diesel and why our recycling center runs on one-hundred percent solar power,” said Patty Garbarino, President of MSS. “Our partnership with the Alliance enables us to support the growth of all California’s green businesses – a bright spot in our otherwise gloomy economy.”

The Alliance was created to amplify the business voice in support of California’s efforts to promote clean energy, fossil fuel independence, and energy efficiency. This growing network of businesses is committed to these efforts because they spur investment, innovation, and economic growth in the California while protecting the economy from the volatility of fossil fuel prices and the hidden costs of climate change.

“The California Business Alliance for a Green Economy is pleased and honored to welcome Marin Sanitary Service as a member,” said Susan Frank, Alliance Coordinator. “The company joins over 1,070 other small businesses, chambers of commerce, clean tech companies, and business associations – who collectively employ tens of thousands of people – across California who support the state’s growing clean energy economy.” For more information about the California Business Alliance for a Green Economy visit
