Another roller coaster riding, mini donut filled fortnight of fun has drawn to a close at PNE 2013.
In addition to the usual suspects – rides –animals -prize homes –great music acts and the ever entertaining slice’em dice’em market place vendors, food always plays a major roll at the PNE, from candied apples and cotton candy to corn on the cob.
This year though, there was a big difference on the food front ….in terms of waste that is!
Recycling Alternative was thrilled to be included in Vancity’s ECO ALLEY to demo our state of the art on-site composting machines.
Green Good Composters provide one of the best on-site solutions for food waste. The technology works on microbiology and heat. The microbes are similar to the ones found in deep sea vents and love to feast on food waste in a hot environment. The result is significant reduction in volume of food waste as well as the nasty smells and sloppy mess that can accompany food waste.
The machines have proven a popular and successful option for a number of local restaurants, hotels and supermarkets.
Green Good Composters come in a number of sizes designed to match the various volumes a home or business might generate.
Apartment residents love the GG02, which processes up to 2 kg’s per day, the average amount of food waste a Canadian family generates daily.
Larger generators of food waste such as restaurants, hotels, schools, hospitals, supermarkets and food courts can choose from a suite of the GG machine models (GG10, GG30, GG50, GG100, GG500) to best suit their needs and food waste volumes:
Site staff at the PNE used the GG100 over the 2 week fair and were so proud of the results, that they are now considering ways to introduce the machines across their year round operation to tackle and their food waste.
