What’s next for Juneau Compost?

Guests: Lisa Daugherty, owner of Juneau Composts

Lisa Daugherty talks about how her business, Juneau Compost, continues to grow, yet is still a long ways from diverting all of the food waste that currently goes into the dump. She is currently working with the City and Borough of Juneau to expand her operations.

In a year’s time, Juneau Compost turns food waste into mulch, or soil amendments, that can be used to fertilize gardens (Photos courtesy of Lisa Daugherty).
