kitchen scraps composting
Original post made by Joe, Barron Park, on Feb 6, 2011
I am encouraged to compost vegetable and fruit scraps from the kitchen in an effort to reduce waste, recycle and generally "go green". However:
1. I don't have yard space to do this at home
2. The City of Palo Alto forbids me from putting vegetable and fruit scraps from my kitchen, in my green garden waste recycling bin.
Strangely, the East Palo Alto, forbids residents from putting vegetable and fruit scraps in the general garbage and REQUIRES that these sraps be placed in their equivalent of the green garden recycling bin.
Why does East Palo Alto require residents to recycle kitchen cuttings in the city provided recycling bins, but Palo Alto. forbids the same practice?
Why contentious local politics? More examples from ADU at Council
