Below are some impressive statistics that Ken Freestone, Residential Energy Advisor of the City of Holland, gave us about how beneficial Black River’s composting has been:
We’ve learned that over the past approximately 4 months, we have diverted 113.4 yards of material from the landfill. Secondly, of the 8 organizations that participated in the composting pilot program (entirely churches and nonprofits, we were the only school) we by far produced the most compost. By all the groups together, 5.82 tons of CO2 were reduced from the atmosphere and due to the size our contribution a large percentage of that number was due to our compost. WOW!
