Renew the Brew
Since 2012, ADEQ's Renew the Brew campaign has offered employees a way to keep coffee grounds out of the landfill. Throughout the building, containers are placed next to all coffee pots for the collection of used coffee grounds and filters. Volunteers take the containers home and empty the contents onto their compost piles to speed up decomposition or apply them directly to their gardens to discourage pests and attract earthworms.
ADEQ invites you to start renewing the brew at your office and home. Print off our Renew the Brew logo and affix it to a large plastic coffee canister to inspire waste reduction and botanical enhancement.
