We are currently accepting participants for Round 3 of our Community Composting Pilot Program in collaboration with EDS Waste Solutions, slated to run from May 1-August 31, 2019. You talked! We listened. Here are the details:
- For Round 3, participants will pay $12/month (down from $19) to compost up to 5 gallons of compost/week (down from 10 gallons/week).
- Participants are able to drop off ALL kitchen scraps, including meat, bones, cheese, avocado pits, onions, citrus peels, and other items not typically compostable in a backyard composter or pile (No paper, compostable plastics, or yard scraps).
- Participants can access the bin AT ANY TIME and are not limited by EDS drop-off hours.
- Located behind King Soopers in Evergreen, the drop-off location is convenient and easy to use.
- Participants from past Rounds and signed up for Round 3 by May 1st will receive FREE COMPOST in mid-May (details forthcoming to paid participants).
Why compost? Composting keeps organic waste out of landfills where it decomposes and contributes to methane levels in the atmosphere, a potent greenhouse gas and major contributor to climate change. Composting also helps make fertile, nutrient-rich soil, incredibly important for growing nutritious food.
Thank you to all of our participants who desire to bring this sustainable and important practice to the mountains! A special shout out goes to Chris Pfaff, EAS+Y Volunteer and Zero Waste Committee Member, who planted the seed of the idea with a simple conversation, proving that is really takes all of YOU to make our community sustainable. Thanks Chris!
