Raise the curtain on our waste management

In our series “Curtain Raise!” We offer employees of Holding Cross. In keeping with the current organic waste campaign, this time we’re spotlighting Richard Trampsch.

He contributes his expertise as head of staff for infrastructure management, processes and innovation in our waste management.

How can everyone collect organic waste properly?

Biochemical waste generated from kitchen, house and garden should be properly collected and then disposed of in local dustbins. “Trash” available from holding grass at the Grass Resource Park or other pre-collection containers available in the kitchen and garden are suitable for pre-collection. To keep these containers clean, if necessary, they can be lined with a biodegradable paper bag, which can be thrown into the organic waste bin along with organic waste. These biodegradable paper bags are also available at Grass Resource Park in Holding Grass. Please do not use natural plastic bags!

What should you absolutely avoid or pay special attention to when disposing of organic waste?

Throw only suitable organic waste in the organic waste bin, such as fruit and vegetable waste and kitchen leftovers (but not liquid food leftovers), eggshells, citrus peels, flowers, garden harvest waste, grass clippings, leaves, shrub clippings, eggshells, Like potting soil on a smaller scale. It’s all in the organic waste bin! But under no circumstances should food in its packaging (plastic bags, plastic cups, foil, cans, jars or the like) be thrown into the organic waste bin! Leftover liquid food, used cooking oils and fats, large quantities of meat waste, bones, cat litter, ashes, diapers, sanitary products and many other organic wastes do not go into the organic waste.

What are the benefits for the residents of Grasse if they separate and collect their organic waste?

You are doing something for the environment and closing natural cycles. High-quality compost and compost soil are produced from clean and separately collected organic waste. Compost, garden soil and bark can be purchased at the soil sales at Rumpfgasse 16 or delivered to you in bulk. In this way, these products can be recycled and vegetables, grains, fruits, flowers and ornamental plants can be planted and harvested. Fertilizers themselves apply quality manure to their fields and lawns.

Can you share a special tip from your experience in waste management?

It is important not to put leftover liquid food in the organic waste bin. You can insert the mentioned paper bags or other biodegradable paper into the pre-collection aid to absorb the moisture. This keeps the organic waste bin clean and odor free.
