ReVision Heat and Garbage to Garden Generate Sustainable Local Partnership
Portland, ME- ReVision Heat and Garbage to Garden are teaming up in an effort to encourage citizens of Southern Maine to reduce their environmental impact. Every household that installs a pellet boiler or whole house ductless heat pump system from ReVision Heat will receive three months of free curbside composting service from Garbage to Garden.
The partnership emphasizes a movement toward local, environmentally-friendly alternatives that stimulate in-state economic growth and responsible resource management. ReVision Heat’s pellet boilers produce nutrient rich ash that when composted by Garbage to Garden contributes to enriched soils to continue the natural cycle.
“This is an exciting opportunity to help even more members of our community divert this waste to a more positive end,” said Garbage to Garden President and Founder Tyler Frank. “There’s a lot of household waste that people don’t know is compostable. Educating people to maximize waste diversion is imperative to a greener Maine.”
The high cost of oil results in a loss of environmental and monetary resources within the state. Oil defers 85 cents on the dollar to out of state agencies, according to a special report by ABC affiliate WMTW. Converting to an efficient wood pellet boiler heating system offsets 90% of the carbon emissions released by oil combustion, all while saving families money and contributing to Maine’s sustainable forest industry.
Through its curbside collection program, Garbage to Garden can help save money for both households and municipalities by treating food waste as a natural resource. In the past year, Garbage to Garden estimates it has saved the city of Portland upwards of $100,000.
