Clients store their food waste for a day or two. Greenbin picks it up and empties it into Bokashi bins. Once the bins are full, they’re covered with a microbial bran. These bins are sealed and stored for two weeks. In this time the food waste is broken down in an anaerobic process. The food waste is then dropped into the ground and covered for the composting process.
Bokashi is a Japanese word that means “fermented organic matter. The Bokashi host medium can indeed be almost any fine organic grain or grass-like substance — bran, rice, wheat mill, waste product from flour milling, used mushroom growth medium, dried leaves, even sawdust.
Bokashi composting is an anaerobic process that relies on inoculated bran to ferment kitchen waste, including meat and dairy, into a safe soil builder and nutrient-rich tea for your plants.
