This past month we were able to partner with Sunshine Coast Community Forests to change the status quo from burning to composting of over 100 tonnes of wood waste. Traditionally the leftover wood waste from logging, called “”slash”, is burned on site to reduce fire hazards. Instead through composting we are able to recover over 80% of the carbon compared to open burning.
To redce on emissions we transported our grinder to the location and ground the material on site. This allowed us to reduce the number of trips to our site by filling the bin to the brim with ground material.
We are looking forward to more partnerships with the Community Forests to capture carbon and turn a would be waste and air contaminant into nutritious compost.
