The Comox Strathcona Waste Management service is offering residents one more opportunity before summer to purchase a “Green Cone” as the first round of sales proved so popular with residents keen to recycle their leftover kitchen scraps.

The Comox Strathcona Waste Management service is offering residents one more opportunity before summer to purchase a “Green Cone” as the first round of sales proved so popular with residents keen to recycle their leftover kitchen scraps.

The Green Cone takes all types of food waste, including fruit and vegetable scraps, cooked and uncooked meats, fish, bones, and dairy products, along with other food waste such as bread and pasta.

The digester turns these scraps into water and carbon dioxide and then the nutrients are absorbed back into the soil. Garden waste cannot be put in the Green Cone.

The Green Cones are on sale until June 10 for $120, including tax. Residents can call 250-334-6000 or 1-800-331-6007 to place their orders. For more information on the waste digesters visit www.cswm.ca/greencones
