To divert organic matter away from landfill and incineration (WTE) and towards creation of valuable, nutrient rich soil.
Create and implement a system for collecting then composting, digesting and/or mulching all green waste generated through landscaping activities.
Determine materials generated through landscaping activities. Set expectations with the landscape department or landscape service provider (via contract or standard practice) that all yard trimmings should be composted, digested or mulched. If the facility disposes of materials, separate bins should be provided for green waste processing. Identify a composter, digester or reuse operation that can accept the materials generated at the site. If materials are taken off site by a landscape service provider, confirm proper processing.
- Narrative describing the process for collecting, composting, digesting or mulching waste generated through landscaping activities. The narrative should describe the identification of materials, their disposition, and the organization(s) that are processing the material (if applicable).
- Documentation supporting practices including written company policies or contract with landscaping service provider. Verification of green waste collection services can be documented with invoices, agreements, weight tickets, or official letters from the service provider or processor.
