Alter Terra’s Innovative Entrepreneurial Revitalization Program Reduces Trash Flow Into California’s Tijuana Estuary Preserve by 30%

Every year, some 60,000 cubic yards of sediment and trash flow from the Los Laureles Canyon across the San Diego-Tijuana border and into the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve; the largest coastal wetland in Southern California and last remaining estuary in California.

Oscar Romo and Jennifer Hazard of Alter Terra have found a new purpose for the trash they recover, transforming once-abandoned items and bike parts into ceiling and light fixtures, wallets and purses, and even local public art.
