More About GSI’s Yardwaste Program
Next, for a nominal monthly fee, even less that the cost of your monthly trash bill, you will get a special brightly- colored yardwaste cart to put your materials into. Your yardwaste cart will be picked-up weekly. Then it is taken to a local dairy. At the dairy, the yardwaste is placed in large piles, called windrows.
Consequently, this is where it is processed, and can be mixed with manure. The material is turned and/or shredded over several weeks. Next, it is broken down into a beneficial soil amendment. Finally, after the compost process is complete, they dairy sells the finished, certified Class I-Class III compost and soil amendment products. Most noteworthy, the finished products are added to gardens, trees, grass, crops or landscape. This is done as a way to keep provide earth-friendly nutrients to plants.
Most importantly, GSI has been offering this program for 19 years and is proud to be the first company in Northern Colorado to offer a sustainable, closed-loop recycle program to the community.
What Can You Compost
Compost the right way! Use these tips to make your yardwaste compost program run smoothly:
- Include fruit and veggie scraps in your cart! Likewise, keep fruit flies at bay by keeping scraps in a tightly closed container OR store food scraps in the freezer or fridge.
- Next, place scraps in the yardwaste cart the night before or on your pick-up day, to avoid stinking up your cart
- Keep your cart lid complexly closed to avoid critters from checking out its contents
- Place all contents loosely into your cart
- Above all, bundle up that extra yardwaste that does not fit into your cart
