Just recently food scrap recycling came into being in San Carlos, one of the few cities in our mid-Peninsula where that has been introduced.

Food scrap recycling? That's interesting. I eat all my food, and whatever scraps there might be goes down the garbage disposal.

Hi Russel -- That's what I did for years and years; now most of the scraps, paper napkins, paper plates go into the recycle bucket, then the yard waste can. Saves running extra water down the garbage disposal and through the treatment plants, plus compost is made and given back to the community. Seems like the time has come to jump on board--especially is our drought-prone areas.

Sounds like a great way to be a little more environmentally friendly.  Featured at Condo Benefits.

Hi Will, thanks for the feature in the Condo Benefits group. Figuring out an easy way for condo dwellers to take part in the recycling program will be tough in some complexes. San Francisco already requires recycling, but how do you manage the trash chute issue in a large building? I think it has to start with the mindset of folks, persuading them they want to take part and make the changes necessary.
