Transforming the Pruning Waste into Compost

Description of the problem:

The main voluminous waste of the city are the remains of pruning and sweeping, because the arboreal mass is abundant. This is thrown without treatment in an open-air dump.

General Objective:

Reduce by means of the chipping the waste of pruning, which will be used for ornamental use in squares and green spaces, as well as for its composting in the municipal nursery.

Resolution strategy:       

By obtaining a new chipping machine, these wastes can be supplied and reduced, using them for environmental and landscape purposes instead of being burned in the landfill, contaminating the city's air.
