Broken Rail joined our composting collection program after they grew too large to continue backyard composting their coffee grounds.
"Caring for this beautiful world God created is important to our church. The more Styrofoam coffee cups we went through, the more we kept asking ourselves, “Isn’t there a better way?” Our research paid off after a call to Uribe Refuse! Their Waste to Energy program with a dedicated staff member, Melissa, offered an economical solution with expert guidance and support to make it easy and successful.
Steps to Sustainability:
• Our Green Team staff and volunteers were available in between services for several weeks.
• Cafe supplies were replaced with all compostable products
• Signage was created to offer easy-to-follow directions
• Tables showing actual examples of compostables, recyclables and trash items were set up.
The bottom line - a congregation that fully embraced this endeavor and very little financial impact, which was our biggest surprise!"
