Composting starts at home

Organic waste (vegetative and putrescible) represents more than 35% of the municipal solid waste generated in Puerto Rico. It is a program that provides services to the Community in general by offering workshops and guidance on compost generation as an alternative to reduce the garbage that reaches our landfills by 40%. Organic planting and harvesting is promoted, in a simple and economical way, where it can represent a source of additional income in the home.

School/Community Compost Mania Program

This program provides educational material for the educator and his students and it is anticipated that the program will extend to community groups.

It is a program that impacts schools, creating eco-friendly zones, from where the organic material coming from the Courtyard (leaves, grass, branches) and the school cafeteria (fruit and vegetable remains, egg shells, among other campus waste) is diverted to the compost heap created by the Program. Students learn the importance of reducing organic waste on campus and also inorganic waste because the recycling of all waste on campus is promoted. This program provides educational material for the educator and his students and it is anticipated that the program will extend to community groups.
