Using Worms to Reduce Food Waste Costs at the Monroe Correctional Complex

The Monroe Correctional Complex is using worms to reduce food waste disposal costs while also providing a meaningful science and sustainability education and work program for offenders. The vermiculture program can process 10,000 pounds of food scraps per month, resulting in a cost reduction of more than 25 percent.
