Triple Benefits from the Green Bin Program

  1. The volume of trash headed for our local Nanaimo area landfill is reduced by close to 50%.

2. ICC’s composting plant at Duke Point, just south of Nanaimo, currently processes 50-60 tons of organic waste, creating rich compost and compost-enriched soil available for your garden.

3. In the future food waste will be converted into renewable fuels.

Yes – you read that right! In the future your chicken bones and corn cobs will be converted into fuel to run your car or generate electricity. The B.C. government has promised a $2.5 million investment into the International Composting Corporation (ICC), Nanaimo based liquid biofuel project. The plan is for 2 million litres of biodiesel to be produced annually from the organic waste collected from our region.

This diagram from ICC shows how it works. For more information visit http://www.iccgroup.ca

Testimonials

When I decided to sell my home in Cedar by the Sea last April, I asked Love Real Estate Group to list it. Within a week, I had offers and a purchaser. Next, Love Real Estate Group showed me a number of potential residences that could meet my needs. Within three weeks, I was very interested in buying a townhouse, made an offer and it was accepted. I was very impressed with Love Real Estate Group’s manner in which they dealt with me. Their advice, professionalism and prompt service were especially appreciated. I would highly recommend these Ladies to others if they are seeking either to sell or buy a home. Thanks again Love Real Estate Group.

We had been planning a move from Calgary to Nanaimo for retirement purposes for a few years. Upon discovering Love Real Estate Group a relationship began. Over a period of time, with patience, professionalism, good humour and integrity, Love Real Estate Group helped us secure a home that met our needs and our wishes. We are happy to recommend Love Real Estate Group to anyone looking to buy a property in the Nanaimo area.
