With our new recycling program, we’ve already composted 1,500 lbs of organic matter this week alone! The EPA reports that 4.9% of our nation’s landfill comes from corrugated boxes with another 3.0% coming from glass bottles. So, starting Monday, we’ll be initiating the next phase of our recycling program. All cardboard, glass, plastic, and metal cans will be recycled in a more efficient way with our new single stream recycling program. We’ll be posting our recycling statistics on this blog so, if you’re interested in how much our company is recycling, check back here for updated recycling statistics.
A Legendary Event became a little greener today by enlisting the help of Greenco Environmental. Greenco Environmental (“Greenco”) is the leading organic recycling company servicing the Southeast. By combining large quantities of food waste, yard waste and wood waste, Greenco creates high quality organic compost with zero landfill contribution. Greenco is the first commercial food waste composting operation to garner a permit and endorsement from the Environmental Protection Division (EPD) or Georgia. Beginning today, A Legendary Event will separate ALL of its food and floral waste from other recyclables. The waste will then be hauled to Greenco’s 32-acre Barnesville-based facility where it will be tilled and turned into organic compost. Dave Lishness, A Legendary Event’s Chief Operating Officer said, “We’re always looking for ways to make our company greener; this seemed like the next evolutionary step toward becoming part of the ‘green’ solution.”
