" ...individual bins are collected by Working Centre Job Café staff three times a week. The waste is then hauled to a processing plant in Elmira where it is turned into green energy through anaerobic digestion.
Jordan Dolson at Legacy Greens has found the pilot convenient.
"Our partners at the Working Centre pick up our organic waste three times a week and we just have a different receptacle for things like food scraps and any food waste," Dolson says.
At Full Circle Foods, another participant, co-owner Julia Gogoleva says the pilot has a good system in place.
"It's convenient to have our own bin that we keep, and it's lovely to have the program workers come around to collect the compost," Gogoleva says."
