CRD to offer subsidized composter program

The Cariboo Regional District will once again be offering a subsidized composter program this year.

Sales will be advanced rather than first come first serve as feedback from last year’s program indicated that there was not enough supply to meet the demand. Last year all 250 composters were sold within several hours.

This year’s program will include Green Cone food waste digesters, in addition to the Earth Machine composter that was sold last year. Green Cones accept all cooked and uncooked food waste including meat, fish, bones, dairy products, vegetables and fruit.

Order forms are available on the CRD’s website at cariboord.bc.ca and must be submitted by March 31 to take advantage of the offer.

Composting at home reduces greenhouse gas production, reduces garbage transportation costs, reduces landfill leachate production, extends the life of landfills and utilizes the nutrients in food waste.
