San Francisco's Bold New Recycing Law is in Effect

Last June, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, signed a new law that would require residents and businesses to start composting food waste, plant trimmings and other items. This is the first City to mandate this to residents and businesses (Seattle was the first to have a compost law, but it doesn't include businesses and apartment buildings.)

This is going to be very interesting to watch, I personally hope it is a huge success and that it becomes the norm all over the U.S. It may even inspire folks to start composting on their own and feed it back into their own soil. For this, I recommend using reclaimed materials, like those our clients donate to Habitat for Humanity stores and those found on DiggersList.

How do you feel about composting? Do you currently compost? Please share your comments.
