Composting

Organic waste, such as food scraps, attribute to 63% of the methane gas emissions in a typical landfill. Methane is a particularly bad greenhouse gas with 25 more global warming potential as carbon dioxide. Composting organic waste offers a valuable alternative that greatly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and provides a nutrient rich soil amendment. The SYCEO composts the organic waste at Tribal Hall and uses the results to amend the sustainable landscaping around the Tribal Hall. Composting also provides cost savings in the form of reduced waste hauling fees and soil amendment purchasing.
