“…when it came to meat bones, shells from seafood, cat and dog poop or just those chicken breasts I never got around to cooking and are starting to grow hair in the fridge, backyard composting has its limits,” writes Licia Corbella in today’s Calgary Herald. “So, imagine my delight when I was granted a special tour of Calgary’s Green Cart Composting Facility in Calgary’s deep southeast near the Shepard Landfill.”
Since the beginning of October, when the citywide residential program was fully engaged, Calgary has seen a 50 per cent reduction in the amount of waste picked up in the black carts, which is transported to the landfill.
