Compost Collection Station @ Span
Span is running a compost collection program that use different composting and worm farming methods. Compost caddies are available to community members who can then deliver their compost for use in Span’s community garden. The goal is to make people more aware of food waste and to make it easier for them to separate it from waste to landfill. Caddies are available from a drop off / pick up point at the front of Span and accessible at all times. Contact Span to register your interest in being involved with this program.
Local Seeds is a marketplace for seed savers. You can buy and sell seeds online. Their mission is to encourage more people to save seeds, to help preserve genetic diversity, and to give people access to seeds that are adapted to their local environment. You can find more info about how it works and register to sell your seeds here: https://www.localseeds.
Rubber Band Collection Relief
While rubber can be recycled, it’s a bit more complicated than tossing it into your average recycle bin. There is actually a specific, separate process for rubber recycling.
Are rubber bands compostable? Technically, yes! Rubber comes from the sap of a rubber tree, and the rule with composting is: If it was once alive, it can be composted. However, rubber takes a long time to break down or biodegrade, so it is best to reuse rubber bands rather than to toss them in the compost bin. Don’t throw them out! Span aims to collect Rubber bands and forward them onto organisations, schools and social enterprises that are able to reuse them.
