The easier path to sustainability
Jay Getka knows money doesn’t grow on trees. So, when the Fleet Manager for the city of Kenosha saw the dollars his city could save by purchasing equipment versus renting, he knew it was time to branch out.
For the past 15-plus years, the city of Kenosha has offered biannual composting services to its citizens. Getka said the city allows for drop off or curb collection of yard waste, including trees, leaves, and grass clippings. The city then processes the waste using a trommel screen, an integral piece of equipment its public works department didn’t own.
