Black Bear Composting & Woodard Properties

Posted on: Oct 21, 2014


Woodard Properties started our organics recycling program with Black Bear Composting in January 2014. We began by composting in our office and have expanded the program by gradually adding more properties throughout the year. We are now proud to say that 750+ residents of Woodard Properties have access to the organics recycling service provided by Woodard Properties and Black Bear Composting!

Woodard Properties residents at the following locations currently have access to free compostable bags and Black Bear Composting bins:

14th Street (all properties)
John Street (all properties)
13th Street (all properties)
Wertland Street(all properties)
106 & 300 Montebello Circle
110 Carrollton Terrace
423 & 425 North 1st Street
762 King Street
Graduate Centre & Arlington Park

Simply tie all compostable items* securely in a compostable bag (available in the compost bag mailbox dispenser at each location) and place in the 65-gallon Black Bear Composting cart.

As of September 30, 2014, residents and employees of Woodard Properties have collectively composted 4.78 TONS of organic materials. That’s nearly 10,000 lbs. of waste diverted from the landfill! We’ve tried to make the composting process as simple for you as possible, so please join us in our efforts to reduce waste! Feel free to contact with any comments or suggestions as to how we could further improve your composting experience.

*PLEASE be sure to only place approved compostable items in the Black Bear bins as any contaminants have to be sorted out by hand.
