Did you know that Teton County is composting?
The transfer station in Teton County receives a lot more than household waste. In our agricultural community, dead livestock and waste from meat processing amounts to more than 70 tons of waste each year! This year, the county sent staff to a training to learn how to compost waste from dead animals. The compost rows pictured have been successful so far, and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality gave its approval. The animals and wood chip combination will break down into soil that will be used on site. The county plans to start composting yard waste and manure next.
Did you miss TVCR's screening of the documentary TRASHED? You can still borrow it to show at your home or in your classroom!
TVCR's free screening of the documentary TRASHED was a big hit! If you couldn't make the screening, or if you saw it and want to share it with others, you can show the film at your home or in a classroom. Contact TVCR at email@example.com to reserve it. TVCR has written permission from the producers to distribute the film for home viewing parties and school programs. Watch the trailer here.
