Affinity Management adds zero food waste to second course

The zero food waste initiative begun last year at Ferncroft Country Club in Massachusetts must be paying dividends, because Affinity Management is taking it to its golf property in Wisconsin.

Silver Spring Golf Club in Menomonee Falls has become the first golf property in the Midwest that aims to turn all of its food waste into liquid fertilizer, via bokashi composting.

“The only thing [that] goes into the garbage cans here are bones,” Affinity’s Damon DeVito told WTMJ-TV. “Everything else, including dairy and meat, will be fermented.”

Affinity believes the composting will keep 16,000 pounds of garbage out of local landfills every year.
