A new Community POWER grant from the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board will help the Como Community Council create an online forum for residents to learn about how to reduce waste and recycle more.
The grant will go toward Como Composts, an online project aimed at educating residents to help reduce the amount of organic waste entering the solid waste stream as well as too much phosphorus leaching from organics in street gutters, which pollutes Como Lake. With this grant, the council hopes to increase neighbors’ knowledge of how to compost at home and use Ramsey County yard waste sites as an organics recycling option.
If you are interested in getting involved in this initiative, contact Frank Dolejsi by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more about how to take simple steps to reduce waste, visit RethinkRecycling.com.
