Village of Corrales Collaborates with Intel Employeesto Build and Test Small-scale Composting in Corrales

Corrales Parks and Recreation Department to Use the Compost

The Village of Corrales has collaborated with a team of 15 Intel employees to build and test the feasibility of small scale composting in Corrales. This project represents a three- to six-month partnership between the Village of Corrales Parks and Recreation Department and Intel employees to design, construct and pilot a composting facility on the grounds north of the Recreation Center Main building. The site will produce compost that meets the standards and guidelines established by the United States Department of Agriculture [USDA] for use by the Village. The site will also serve the community by promoting and educating Corrales residents about the benefits of recycling through composting.

This composting project was one of nine Intel Sustainability in Action projects across the globe this year that received a grant. Intel SIA grants empower employee teams to pursue their ideas and exemplify Intel's commitment to environmental sustainability. The Intel SIA program is in its third year. This year, a selection team reviewed 44 proposals from around the globe and awarded grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. Intel awarded this composting pilot project $18,000.
