Vote for the Shredder in Participatory Budgeting!

Vote to purchase and install a high capacity shredder at the Salt Lot at the Gowanus Conservancy. 

Several local public schools have worked hard to replace their styrofoam trays with compostable ones (which are substantially more expensive than the original ones).  Only problem is, there is no local site big enough to collect and compost them.  This proposal will allow the Conservancy to collect, shred and compost the trays which will substantially reduce the amount of waste going to local landfills.  It will also open the way for more schools to replace their trays at a lower cost for everyone.

Make sure you vote in Participatory Budgeting and when you get there, after schmoozing with your neighbors, vote for the shredder!
