community of Sand/Italy, has decided to quit from garbage service. All
citizens are now authorized to put their garbage to a compost center
which is much cheaper than pick-up garbage service. Employees of the
compost center take care about handling of diffent wastes by spraying
of effective microorganisms (Emos), and if there is too much moistuire,
they mix it with fine milled minerals from stones. After composting process,
compost will be spread on neighboured sports field to achieve a better
growth of the lawn.
Usually compost must be turned three times a day in summer to avoid
too high temperatures, but with Emos once a week is enough. Moreover,
there are no smell problems anymore, perfect temperatures are between
50 and 55° C. Cuttings of bushes will be shreddered, sprayed with
Emos and covered with straw and foil for about 3 months. The finished
product will the put on compost hill. After sieving reday made compost
will be sold for 10 EUR/ m3.
