A Cincinnati business group has developed a project to promote composting in the greater Cincinnati area.

The Greater Cincinnati Green Business Council said in a news release the collaborative project features a Workplace Composting Toolkit for larger businesses.

The kit outlines all necessary prep-work, regional resources, suppliers and steps to develop a workplace composting program. It is designed to serve as a guideline for employers to focus on effectively managing waste costs associated with dining operations, cafeterias and break rooms.

The project supports the recent development of composting services in the greater Cincinnati area. Members of the Greater Cincinnati Green Business Council are embracing composting as part of their overall waste reduction efforts, the group said. Some members are using composting as part of zero-waste-to-landfill programs.

The company partners on the project hope to identify solutions to environmental issues. “We are excited to collaborate with these great companies to develop a roadmap for success for greater Cincinnati employers,” said Pamela Brailsford, senior director of supplier diversity & sustainability for Cintas Corp.
