Corporate Composting

As part of our Social Responsibility company value – we have recently partnered with Growing City in an attempt to reduce our carbon footprint and waste.

The benefits of implementing a corporate composting plan

New to our lunch room is a “silver garbage receptacle.” Listed on top of this receptacle are all of the items which our office staff can compost.

The Plan

We currently have a 50L composting bin to start with and we will monitor the load capacity to see if we need to speak with Growing City and upgrade to a larger size.

We have also gone and switched our garbage bags to compostable bags and put them in each of our washrooms for paper towel use only.  They will be emptied into the compost bin in the kitchen at the end of each day.

We have also placed additional small bins in our coffee areas upstairs throughout the office to gather compostable waste to be transferred to the compost bin in our lunch room at the end of each day.

We look forward to working together with Growing City and their community oriented projects around the city.
