Figuring out the tonnage we can expect from a newly served community, in order to design a composting facility, is a challenging task. We were very fortunate to work with Tim O’Neil and his team at ECS who provided an in-depth and methodological approach for doing so. The end result is a living model that we can revisit periodically, fine tune and even validate with real life data as collection of green wastes and food wastes expands around our active sites.
