DECOST: First compost distributed to local residents participating in the Spanish pilot activity
The DECOST pilot activity in Les Masies de Roda, Spain, began in September 2020, allowing the development of an innovative combination of waste collection: this Catalan town is one of the first experiences in which a global system of door-to-door collection of urban waste is combined with an integrated system of community composting to deal with the 100% of the organic waste. After some months, the new system is being very well received by the local residents, who value very positively the advantages that it brings.
Recently, the project has reached a new milestone: the first bags of compost produced entirely from the organic waste of the town have been obtained. Waiting to be able to implement a social project in the future related with urban agriculture, at the moment the DECOST compost will be freely available for local residents who are making it possible for the system to work.
