It was the winter of 2012 when I visited the Noble Correctional Institution in Ohio to observe their sustainability programs. Tops on my list of things to see was the Big Hanna in-vessel composter. Warden Tim Buchannan was justifiably proud of all his programs at the institution, but the Big Hanna was a different way of doing business.
GreenPrisons is pleased to welcome the Big Hanna composter as a permanent sponsor for GreenPrisons.org. This revolutionary composting unit originally developed in Europe and utilized in correctional facilities across the continent is now available in the US.
