Making Citywide Composting Profitable

In today’s Daily Freeman, Andi Turco-Levin announces her desire to get behind a citywide composting program for the city of Kingston.

There are many components to discuss on the subject such as residents doing more of it themselves (by mulching leaves and composting bigger pieces of yard waste) and mandatory leaf bagging (a source of controversial discussion).

But whether it’s left curbside, bagged, bundled – whatever – the fact remains that the city is scrambling to find a place for yard waste, as we no longer have a place for it as we have in the past. So what to do?

Take a look at the City of Palo Alto, CA’s model. Interesting indeed. (Taken from the facebook page. Thanks Brad Will)

What can you do in the meantime?

  1. Always, always mulching! Heavens! Don’t put “life” in the garbage! Between leaving it on the lawn and putting it in bags, there’s mulching… how easy is that?

    Thanks so much for the leadership, Andi!

  2. How is it that we are told that our firefighters answering thousands of medical calls each year doesn’t cost anything extra and picking up leaves does?
