Close the Loop! St. Albans

Farmer Richard Hudak, checking compost pile Close the Loop! St. Albans is a community effort to recycle our food waste through composting, diverting food waste from the landfill and keeping it as a local resource.

A wide variety of partners make Close the Loop St. Albans! possible. So far we have:

  • Provided systems-thinking education to 3000 students and 600 staff from local businesses;
  • Supported the development of a local on-farm composting site capable of recycling 500-780 tons of food waste annually; and,
  • Developed a viable food waste hauling route to serve local businesses.
