This project demonstrated the collection and processing of source separated organics and green wastes combined.
The delivered materials were then processed and composted on the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
site that had been designed with lysimeters to collect and monitor contact water.
The projects success was due to the cooperation of the local waste haulers to supply designated containers to the
residents and businesses to mix both compostable organic waste and green waste together for collection.
The finished composted materials were used by the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum gardeners as well
as other commercial landscapers and residents.
