What incredible news! Here is the chance for local businesses and restaurants to up their sustainability ante and reduce their waste significantly! Thank you Sedona Compost!Because Sedona has been so receptive to composting as a measure of sustainability...
WE ARE NOW SERVICING BUSINESSES!🎉
As of this week, we are equipped to provide collection service to... 💚restaurants 💚resorts 💚cafes 💚coffee shops 💚offices 💚hair salons 💚yoga studios 💚co-working spaces 💚and more...
If you own a business or work at a business that isn't currently composting its food waste–whether it be food prep for a restaurant or in a break room at a professional office–you can help Sedona Compost expand its impact!
To give you an idea of the potential impact of this growth:
It is estimated that the average restaurant produces around 100,000 lbs of waste annually, and the EPA reports that up to 80% of that waste is food scraps!
AND > "Every 100 lbs we collect prevents enough methane from entering the atmosphere to offset 568 miles of driving."
Help us spread the word! 🌱If you're a business owner, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about setting up composting options for your business
🌱If you know a business owner in town, we'd be extremely grateful for an introduction
🌱If you work somewhere, let management know this service is now available for the first time ever in Sedona
Plus, getting in on this right away will give your business "bragging rights" for being the first! 😉 –not a bad way to stand out in the marketplace, be a leader for others and reduce your carbon footprint even further.

Is food/yard waste the last part of the waste stream you need to reduce? Here is a short primer on how to start your own home compost.Here is an easy backyard compost system that’s intended to achieve the following goals: 1. Reduce waste 2. Create high quality fertilizer 3. Create habitat for beneficial insects The focus is on insect habitat because the symphony of insects, fungi and bacteria process the organic material into rich compost. Wooden containers are preferred over plastic. Wood allows more air and regulates the temperature better. The compost is covered with plywood unless taking advantage of rain. A base of wood chips, bark, biochar, twigs, fruit pits, bones, corn cobs, leaves etc is used over and over until it breaks down into small bits. This material absorbs and retains moisture while providing habitat and air spaces. Leaves, plant trimmings, kitchen vegie scraps, coffee grounds etc are added basically to feed the bugs and add nitrogen. Manure from chickens, llamas, deer, rabbits etc are welcome in small amounts. The compost isn’t really turned. Just loosened with a pitch fork when it seems compacted. It’s watered just enough to keep it on the moist side. It gets sifted maybe once a year with a ½” screen sieve and the larger bits are returned to the compost box. It doesn’t smell because it gets plenty of air and the fresh material gets buried in the dry mulch. Small mammals aren’t a problem. They can’t really get into it and probably don’t like the buggy environment. **This system works well in an arid desert environment and should do well in wetter environments but might need protection in cold places. ...

Actually that's not true. A NO on Home Rule does not mean loss of support for the city backed charities, just another scare tactic from the sacremeister City Manger who's protecting his cozy 6 figure $200,000+ job including benefits. Spending other people's money is easy and fun.
If you want to see how the city and the citizens don't have to cave to this nonsense, we give you the data and the process every Tuesday thru August 21st.
Voter education of all the options and the data from the city presented in an understandable format is our goal. Please let your friends know if they have questions or are unclear on the process and how it affects the city residents.
Please visit our website.
Michael, if Home Rule fails, unless and ADEQUATE permanent base adjustment comes in in time, all of the grants mentioned in today's RRN will not be funded. It is YOU who is mongering scare tactics. Do you want to get rid of the city manager's salary, or him?
