Did you know that approximately one third to half of the average bag of waste discarded from our homes is made up of compostable material and that here in the communities of our region this all goes into landfill?  Once buried this organic waste is the primary contributor to the emission of methane gas, a climate altering gas contributing 30 times greater impact to climate change than carbon dioxide.

And our landfill site is filling up – fast.  Estimates of 15 years are being discussed for the Windermere regional landfill and composting that 30% would add almost 5 more years to the life expectancy of the landfill; a massive cost saving.
