Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities, Keystone & GreenGood Canada Install On-Site Composter
Vancouver, B.C. Canada – June 28th 2011 – GreenGood (The Company) announces the successful partnership with Pacific Retirement Communities and Keystone in implementing an onsite, closed loop composting program at The Mulberry Retirement Community in Burnaby.

“This partnership proves the economic and the environmental benefits of using onsite composting to handle food waste in a hospitality or seniors housing setting like The Mulberry. An additional benefit has been using the compost for onsite landscaping as well as donating the surplus to local community gardens,” said Colin Bell the managing partner at Keystone.

“The GreenGood composter has lived up to its specifications and promotional literature. The composter compost our food waste overnight and is ready by morning for the day’s waste production. The supplied charcoal filters ensure there are no odours and our garbage area is much cleaner. Now we have a great green story to tell and we are saving money on waste disposal at the same time. I am so impressed with this technology that I purchased the home model and now my family produces nearly zero garbage,” said Peter Gaskill, President Pacific Arbour Communities.
