City receives state grant for composting machine

July 27, 2001


The machine travels over the top of a large compost pile, flipping it over and mixing in oxygen, speeding the composting process.

"This piece of equipment is going to allow us to process more material more efficiently," Mangerich said.

Once the machine is ready, probably by next spring, the city will be able to accept brushy material and clean wood waste that it has been unable to use.
