Pro Arkades - composting business near Berlin
Pro-Arcades is one of 7 companies contracted by City of Berlin to compost green and kitchen waste. This composting enterprise assumes the southern districts of Berlin. Mr. Volker Hohne, (pictured) president of Pro-Arcades, gave Joy, my interpreter, and me a tour of Pro Arkades's facilities. This 10 year old business composts 200 metric tons each day. Much of the compost is sold to local farms where a smaller portion is purchased by the general public.
