Elements Mountain Compost joined the Salida Chamber of Commerce and celebrated the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony at Riverside Park. Owner Julie Mach and her dog Slider are transplants to Salida but claim it as home. She is committed to reducing organic waste by helping businesses divert food-scraps from the landfill and reduce their carbon footprint through composting. EMC provides weekly pick-up services for commercial kitchens and is developing a drop-off program for area residents. Food-scraps are mixed with woodchips, sawdust and other yard-waste to create a nutrient-rich soil product available for local gardeners. Since 2015, EMC has diverted hundreds of cubic yards of reusable organic material from the landfill and helped Chaffee County work towards a more sustainable future.
