They emptied the canteen residues into a container for the separate collection of the wet fraction and placed it in a composter located inside the school: the compost is then used for the vegetable garden. In this way, the first community composter was born that bears the signature of Monica Lozzi, outgoing president of the seventh municipality who, about a year ago, married the project presented by the LILA operators from Ama.
The demonstration of how a cycle of waste can end for the benefit of consumers is presented inside the ‘Rita Levi Montalcini’ school, in the seventh town hall, governed by Monica Lozzi, outgoing president and mayoral candidate with the Civic Revolution. The composter, placed in the special space of the school garden, has been screen-printed to give an educational role to the recycling process: the compost will in fact be used by the children who attend the institute to take care of the vegetable garden. No possibility of contamination of waste inside the machinery which, as explained during the presentation, ‘spits’ materials that are not organic.
“It would not have been too difficult for the mayor to improve the waste situation by investing in community composters in these 5 years, but she has not done so – commented on the sidelines of the Lozzi event – We do, despite not having specific expertise, and we present one that will be able to serve 900 users. We installed it in the Rita Levi Montalcini school: here they no longer have to worry about where to throw away the wet waste from the canteen. The composter will take care of transforming these scraps into soil and fertilizer to be reused “. He concluded: “At this point I ask myself: did it take so long to realize them at the municipal level? I do not think so”.
