The Kentlands Community Foundation’s (KCF) GO GREEN group and the City of Gaithersburg’s Environmental Affairs Committee are sponsoring a presentation by Compost Crew at the Kentlands Clubhouse from 7 to 8 PM on Thursday, July 20th.
Compost Crew, a Montgomery County business, transforms everything from alfalfa pellets and apple cores to wax paper and wool (the City already handles yard debris) into nutrient rich soil through a natural aerobic (with oxygen) decomposition process. The Compost Crew website asserts that almost 40% of our solid waste can be composted. This includes meat and dairy products, grains, oily foods, hair and soiled napkins.
Compost Crew has composting plans (there is a fee) for residential services as well as homeowner association based programs. Their presentation will include information on the ways a pilot compost program might begin in Kentlands or Lakelands.
