Community Center first in Seattle to compost

The Loyal Heights Community Center is the first in the city to start composting. “This means that our center staff and patrons will be producing less waste that will end up in the landfill,” Alexis Govan, the Teen Recreation Leader says.

Cedar Grove delivered the compost bin late last month and “customers are swarming to the bins like flies on, well, compost,” the folks at LHCC tell us. “We’re really excited about being able to provide this service to our staff and customers,” Dena Schuler the Site Coordinator says. “Not only are we doing our part to help out the planet we’re also raising awareness in the community.” Composting is part of several programs offered at LHCC including the preschool, senior, day camp and teen activities.

Don’t get me wrong, compost is a great, BUT as this photo suggests it smells…BAD! Up here in Snohomish County we are pushing Cedar Grove Composting to be more accountable for smell they are forcing on local residents.

Seattle residents, please tell Cedar Grove Composting to stop their smell that impacts hundreds of homes and make compost responsibly.

Puget: Did you move into your home before or after the Cedar Grove facility was in place?

in fact, composting smells far worse than a modern landfill.
