The composting plant of the my green waste produces high quality organic compost from kitchen, garden and other natural waste. Before components such as greenery, lawns, leaves, fruit or fermentation residues are processed in the composting plant, extensive input inspections are carried out, which in particular ensure removal of undesired contaminants or foreign substances. Through natural decomposition processes, professional shredding and continuous aeration, the components oxygen and bacteria create ideal land conditioners. Modern machines and competent employees ensure sustainable waste management.
The reuse of waste is a defining model of the "cycle economic thought". Despite the fact that environmental awareness has clearly increased in the general public in recent years, there are still too many valuable organic resources left unused, although green electricity, high-quality compost or potting soil can be produced from these. It has to be even more internalized that even the smallest amounts of biowaste such as fruit remains, teabags or flower cuts can create something great. With the processing of more than 25,000 tonnes of biowaste, my green waste contributes to closing the natural cycle: Good for the region - good for our future!
The potentials for the proper handling of natural environmental resources are far from exhausted. Of course, the focus is on waste prevention. However: on average, 82 kg of food per citizen were thrown in the garbage in Germany in 2017. Ideally, awareness training should begin with children and adolescents. In addition, there are many other improvement approaches in the areas of proper separation, storage, treatment and recovery, in which each individual should participate with a strong sense of responsibility. Promoting such environmental awareness is the aim of my green waste.
That's why my green waste supports schools and other educational institutions with € 1 per tonne of compost sold. We are convinced that these measures are worthwhile: "Doing nothing is more expensive than acting, because the loss of natural capital leads to the loss of economic prosperity worldwide."
