GIS Mapping

The purpose of the previously-active GIS Mapping subcommitee was to illustrate all the players in the compost industry - from those who generate food scraps to those who pick it up and process it into compost.

DuPage County created a GIS map in 2012 that visually depicted food scrap composting efforts in the 7-county Greater Chicago area. The map shows businesses and institutions that were composting their food scraps at that time as well as compost facilities. The goals of the map were to illustrate infrastructure gaps and to educate policy makers of the growing demand of the industry.

It is hoped that when we gain more resources, this project can be reinvigorated.
