Step 1: Shred Cardboard.
To date, nearly 200lbs of cardboard have been diverted from the trip down valley. Nearly 60lbs of shredded office paper have also made their way into the compost process, primarily as feed for worms in our vermicompost bins. The office shreds are non recyclable and up until today, have been thrown in the trash, in a plastic bag. Not anymore! We have a primitive, yet sophisticated process for collecting, transporting, inventorying and storing shredded office paper from Park Headquarters in Sedro-Woolley, Administration and other buildings on Marblemount as well as the Visitor Center in Newhalem. All office shreds are accounted for, diverted from landfills and will be a part of a tangible, usable and Earth friendly product. Compost!!!
