TTC Signs on to Participate in Food Composting

According to an article in the Nov. 24th Post & Courier, TTC, MUSC, The College of Charleston, and the Citadel  will be recycling their food waste thanks to a contract with Koeckeritz’s Food Waste Disposal. "So far, only MUSC and the College of Charleston have begun collecting the waste. And they’re doing it on a limited basis. The other two schools are expected to roll out their programs soon. ... To participate, the schools receive 64-gallon containers, which Koeckeritz collects several times a week so that it doesn’t pose a health hazard." Charleston County's food composting facility at Bees Ferry Landfill is the only DHEC-approved commercial facility in the state.
