DNC Composting Factoids:
- A1 Organics collected the DNC waste to be turned into compost
- They used special cups from cornstarch that could be composted
- Cardboard and sandwich boxes were composted
- A1 uses a special predatory wasp to control flies in their compost piles
Only 15% of the DNC waste stream wound up in landfills. The rest was composted or recycled.
