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

I am a happy repeat client. Love Real Estate Group sold my two previous houses selling/buying and a lot purchase within a few years. She had lots of patience, listened to me and helped me figure out what do I want and what is the best for me. She was trying to find a real home for me and was not a just rush to push me to buy and move on type. I had a small budget to buy a lot to build on and Love Real Estate Group was an awesome negotiator. I went through many hurdles with these 3 sales and purchases. Every time I had an issue, Love Real Estate Group helped me out and I was able to carry on to get my home. Love Real Estate Group are not simply selling or buying a house for me, They made my dreams come true and can make yours come true as well. They are my tailor-fit realtors.

Love Real Estate Group proved an invaluable help when helping us through the maze of buying a new home, especially when for us it was our 1st home in a new country. No problem was too big and their fun approachable demeanours meant that the whole process was a lot less stressful than it might’ve otherwise been.
