Office Compost Program
We have, from our inception, been an Environmentally Friendly Office Care Company.
While cleaning for our clients we noticed a large volume of organic waste generated in offices and discarded into the garbage. Businesses, unlike residences, don't have access to any formal composting programs so all waste is put into the garbage and sent to the landfill.
Don't just Green Bin at home…Green Bin at work!
Kitchener Clean has developed and now proudly offers an "Office Compost Program" to businesses in the Waterloo Region.
As a member of the Office Compost Program you receive an Organic Waste bin to collect all your organic waste and compostable materials. All the same items that you would Green Bin at home can be put in the Organic Waste bin in the office.
This includes all food scraps, coffee grinds, tea bags, paper towels, tissues. and etc. These compostables are picked up weekly by an Office Care Technician and replaced by a fresh clean Organic Waste bin.
The organic material collected enters the compost stream in one of three ways; donated to local neighbourhood garden compost piles, sent to the Region’s Compost facility or used at Kitchener Clean’s Worm Farm where it becomes worm castings (a high grade fertilizer). Clients can receive a portion of the worm castings generated to be used by any garden enthusiasts on staff.
An Office Compost Program Member and a client of Kitchener Clean with staff of only 20-25 generated over 600 pounds of organic waste in just one year!
The Office Compost Program is available on its’ own or combined with a weekly Office Care and Cleaning service for greater savings.
In today’s world businesses need to be not only financially sustainable but environmentally and socially sustainable as well.
