Lawrence gets grant for compost machine

July 27, 2001


The city of Lawrence has received a $50,000 state grant for a machine to increase the efficiency of composting.

Mollie Mangerich, recycling coordinator for the city, said the grant would be used to purchase a windrow turner.

The machine travels over the top of a large compost pile, flipping it over and mixing in oxygen, speeding the composting process. The machine will allow the city to accept brushy material and clean wood waste .
