Cook County currently does not have a commercial composting program in place. To reduce our community's waste, let's join forces with our neighbors to take our food waste out of landfills and to better use locally! Well what are our options? ShareWaste is an excellent option for Cook County to utilize.
ShareWaste is an international grassroots volunteer-run initiative founded and managed by Eliska Bramborova and Tomas Brambora. ShareWaste aims to encourage people to see their organic waste as a valuable resource and help them turn their waste into new soil and fertiliser by connecting them with other community members. ShareWaste helps people connect through our free app. ShareWaste does not manage any composting sites – all locations on our map are in private, council or commercial hands. Each site is registered by an individual or a coordinator who is responsible for that compost site.
