Compost Pilot Project a Success at the San Juan County Fair

Our community relations manager Carolyn Moulton (bottom row, 2nd from right) had a wonderful time representing Lautenbach Recycling at the San Juan County Fair last week.  Our booth was in the Green Village with environmental stewardship organizations like the San Juan County Conservation Land Bank, the Whale Museum, and Friends of the San Juans.  In partnership with County staff, San Juan Sanitation, and the stellar Youth Conservation Corps pictured here, we facilitated the San Juan County Fair’s Compost Pilot Project to keep 560 pounds of waste out of the landfill.  Fair vendors contributed by providing compostable paper plates and balsam wood cutlery, all destined for composting at our sister facility Skagit Soils.
