Case Study: Communal Composting

The team at Signature Apartments pays close attention to what works and what doesn't work to help more of their residents compost their organic waste.

Residents now deposit their green waste in the Little Green Food Scraps Bin. The gardening group collects those scraps and puts them in the compost, making sure the balance between carbon & nitrogen is observed so the compost can break down properly & there are no smells.
