Contra Costa Community Waste Reduction Grant
November 2019 Winning Project:
Soil Stars! Enriching School Gardens with Compost
Republic Services is proud to give back to our local community in the form of a $1500 Waste Reduction Grant. Congratulations to Rancho Romero Elementary School for being awarded the 2019 grant..
The "Soil Stars!" project is the construction of cold composting bins for re-use of green waste from the gardens at Rancho Romero Elementary School. We would use the grant to purchase materials for the construction of compost bins, composting tools and signage to demonstrate, guide and advise on composting green waste. The prominently placed bins and signage would teach our school and larger Alamo community about the benefits of cold composting used as a garden amendment.
