The Country Gentleman recently catered the CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company Picnic with the goal of making it a waste-free event.
With more 2,800 attendees, the Country Gentleman implemented a recycling strategy to divert waste from going to a landfill.
The strategy resulted in 221.6 pounds of food scraps becoming pig food, 580 pounds of compost, 349 pounds of glass, 104.6 pounds of cardboard and 3.6 pounds of plastic for recycling and only 68.1 pounds of miscellaneous garbage.
The result was 94.9 percent of the waste was not sent to a landfill.
Never miss a local story.
The Country Gentleman is at 9221 W. Clearwater Ave., Kennewick. For more information, call 783-0128 or visit cgrestaurant.com.
