In Athens, Ohio we are working on plans for municipal composting. We need to see examples of other citys doing curbside pick-up of vegetebles scraps, etc. please share examples.
We have read some on Intervale in Vt. and Nova Scotia.
Thx,
Diane

Portland, Oregon is launching organics composting for businesses. Seattle is beginning a program for residential and commercial pick up of organics, based on the successful model developed in San Francisco. Pet manures are considered acceptable material in the SF program, but I don't know if humanure is allowed. Backyard composting of organics is still OK even when curbside pick up is available. There is definitely interest in composting organics among municipalities because approximately one-third of the solid waste stream is potentially compostable. Here in Washington State the goals set for reduction of solid waste have not been met, motivating increased efforts to recycle more of the organic materials.
