Hester & Zipperer Composts Restaurant Waste
Hester & Zipper is proud to be composting vegetable waste from Thrive Cafe and Saigon of Whitemarsh Plaza. That's right. The large wooden structure, built by our very own Travis, is not an ark, but a compost bin. Composting is an easy way to decrease your waste, but it also results in an effective soil amendment. You can do the same thing in your yard!

If you're not sure about composting on a large scale, there is another way to put your vegetable scraps and green waste to good use. Worm composting! Worm castings are one of the best additives for soil, but they can be costly. Click on the link to learn how to set up shop in your own yard. (Great activity for kids who like to get dirty!)

Getting A Charge Out of Recycling
Hester & Zipperer is now a drop off site for old cell phones, cell phone batteries, and rechargeable batteries. The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation can answer any questions you have about what items qualify. Please answer this "Call 2 Recycle."
