Food Waste Composting

Dear Mayor, please consider employing your considerable facilities at the Reservoir Transfer Station for composting of local food waste. Willing participants could have their waste collected by enthusiastic volunteers and the methane normally produced in landfill would be considerably reduced.Your reputation for innovation in environmental measures would be wonderfully enhanced with a miniscule outlay. Yours sincerely, Gaye Bowd (an extremely proud resident)

Why is this important?

Methane produced by food waste in land fill is alarming! The resultant product from composting could be made available to the public or used on city projects.Only small cost and carbon footprint to implement,
