Charlotte Airport to Open Recycling Center With Composting System

One of my most favoritest sites, Earth911, had a post titled Charlotte Airport to Start Worm Composting.

They post said:

The airport plans to open a new $1.1 million recycling center in February with a worm-based composting system that can handle up to two tons of waste per day, the Charlotte Observer reported.

This is such a dope idea. The airport will be using the compost generated on their facility. Whatever is left, they will be packaging and selling it.

It would be great if other facilities around the country took on similar projects.

What’s your thoughts on the composting program and have you seen any others similar to it?
