Granlibakken Tahoe is proud to be a member of Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal's pilot composting program. Through this "yellow bag" program, Granlibakken, partnered with TTSD, is hoping to further its environmental goals and reduce the amount of biodegradable waste that ends up in land.

Composting is a truly amazing process, where organic waste is converted to humus, which can be used as an additive to soil to make it more rich in nutrients. It is pretty awesome to think about our food, lawn, and other organic waste being converted into a rich and valuable soil amendment.

Composting not only helps to create rich soil, but it also eliminates waste from the landfills. Granlibakken has been working to lessen its impact on the environment, and being a part of this pilot program is a part of that. The waste diverted from landfills goes towards a useful and valuable purpose, while biodegrading more efficiently than it would in a landfill.

Granlibakken's location in a peaceful wooded valley just steps from the shores of Lake Tahoe really emphasizes the importance of composting and preserving the ecosystem in which we live. Composting is a step in the right direction. Currently, we are only able to compost organic food waste through this program, but we are looking forward to it growing and becoming a more robust composting program that will serve not only businesses, but also residences in the area to make Tahoe a healthier place.
