Over the past week, we were able to determine three locations we plan to place the composter. One of these locations can be seen in our display picture. We designed concept of the future location of the composter. With this concept we are able to visualize where we would place it and also be able to describe to other groups involved what we plan to do.
We have researched several styles of composting and have narrowed them down to three main styles conventional urban compost bin, horizontal compost tumbler, and compost tumbler. At this point our preference in terms of which composting style is the Horizontal composter. With this style we are able to produce compost in a shorter amount of time compared to the conventional style, also the horizontal style requires less manual labour.
We are currently in contact with organizations that could potential be able to donate skids to the project as well we are currently in talks with University of Windsor Food services and the Essex Windsor Solid Waste Authority.
