Building a better future with Big Hanna

Education Composting

Whether you’re a small Enviroschool or a major university, Big Hanna provides the easy, hygienic solution to recycling food waste into compost. Schools, colleges and universities in Canada, Ireland, France, England, Greece, Norway and Sweden all compost with Big Hanna, educating students and staff along the way. Future generations will help make a better future for the Earth by feeding Big Hanna.

The Big McGill Gorilla, Montreal

McGill University installed a Big Hanna T240 in 2010. It’s taking 200 kg of meat, fish and vegetable scraps from McGill cafeterias every day, reducing it by 90% weight and delivering compost to the campus gardens.
