DES Green Team

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description The results are in! Green Team members and DES volunteers, with the help of the cafeteria staff, composted 5,283 pounds of pre-consumer food waste in 1998. Composting activities started on Earth Day, April 22 and continued until December 22, 1998 when composting was terminated for the season due to weather conditions. The finished compost was given away during Earth Day 1999 activities. The Green Team has completed a pilot test of 100 percent recycled, processed chlorine free (PCF) paper for use at NHDES and the Department is considering agency-wide use of PCF paper. The group is looking for other organizations or businesses that are currently using or considering PCF paper. If readers have a life cycle analysis of PCF paper, contact the NHPPP to share this information.
