Wood Shredder (SP0064)
From the initial application: With the help of the Sustainability Projects Fund we would like to purchase a Leaves/branches shredder to recycle them for campus usage (Leaves and Branches). We would redirect the shredded materials for campus use to become part of the inputs for compost production in Big Hanna.
Compost needs a carbon source which is currently purchased but could be partially replaced with this shredded material. Less organic materials would leave Campus Grounds for a dump site and/or recycling facility. Shredded material could also serve as mulch for the many gardens the University has. Michal Bonar and David Morris from Gorilla Composting would find it useful to get shredded material as a carbon source.
