Thursday, April 15th
Join us for a discussion on the opportunities surrounding compost collection. Michelle from Circle Compost will speak about her experiences growing a sustainable compost collection business in Philadelphia. Established in 2016, Circle Compost is a woman-owned company born from a desire to prevent food scraps, leaves, and other organic discards from being landfilled. Their goal is to change people’s perception of organic materials that have traditionally been considered trash and provide people with a simple, localized alternative to throwing these organic materials away. They make as many of their food scrap pickups from local residents as possible by bicycle trailer to avoid burning fossil fuels! They work to complete the “circle of life” for organic materials, turning your waste into compost used by their urban farm partners to grow food.
Supported by a 2020 recycling grant from DNREC and the Delaware Recycling Public Advisory Council
A zoom meeting invitation will be sent the day of the presentation.
