Down Town Growers is a platform with a focus on clean and green farming through waste reuse and recycling.
At Down Town Growers, we believe there’s a lot we can do to significantly reduce waste. We recycle crop and kitchen waste into compost for organic farming. We also recycle and reuse plastics on our farms to reduce pollution and save the planet.
We understand that a farmer’s time is precious and well-spent working on important aspects of farming. So, we offer them a choice between collection and drop-off. We go on-site to collect recyclable materials or you can bring them to our designated drop-off points. When we come on-site for collection, we pick all waste for disposal, and sort and bale them ready for transport.
We offer free and unbiased advice to farmers on how to handle waste on their farms. As recycling experts, we’re well-positioned to give you useful information that’ll assist you to manage your farm waste effectively.
At Down Town Growers, we’re committed to maintaining transparency in program development and decision making. As such, we have outreach and education programs delivered through trainings and public meetings. We use these meetings to obtain feedback and comments from the public, who’re mainly local growers, on our proposed programs and their pain points. We also accept inquiries during these meetings.
We’re looking to produce creative and innovative products out of recycled materials. Be on the lookout for that.
