Foster's Food Fair IGA helps reduce waste going to Landfill

In yet another way that Beacon Farms is helping to reduce the waste on the island and recycle it into a useful product, we now have an agreement with Foster's Food Fair IGA to pick up discarded carboard meant for the landfill.

The addition of our new Morbark horizontal chipper allows us to handle many types of compostable waste products, including the carboard we collect.   

 

This material, along with the shredded paper from Cay-Shred and other waste products, will be processed at our Compost Facility to make compost we can use right here at the farm to increase our productivity.
