A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

The Hope grounds department composts landscape waste, using the end result to create a compost tea for fertilizer. We use the soil for tree planting and turf renovation operations. We allow our grass clippings to decompose in the turf. Any landscape waste we do not compost onsite is removed by a compost company and taken to their compost facility.


The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted onsite:
10

The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted off-site:
