Today (Monday, Dec 13th, 2021) was the first ever Stevens County Organics pickup day!
We hauled a total of 540lbs of Organics from 8 total participants in Stevens County to the Glacial Ridge Compost Facility in Hoffman, MN.
The top three participants in terms of weight on Day 1 of hauling were: Willie’s SuperValu, Pizza Hut, and Don’s Café!
A big thanks to our program participants, Engebretson Disposal (and Jeff, the official Organics Route Driver), and Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management. It is exciting to reach this milestone of “Organics actually hauled!” Jeff will be back on Thursday for round 2, so let’s keep the momentum going!
Some photos of the big day are attached. Please reach out with any questions and share the exciting accomplishment far and wide!
