If I were mayor

Why doesn't every municipality mandate food scrap recycling? An added benefit is that we will have compost available for the entire town. Instead, every town I've ever lived in has recycling only for glass, metal and paper. It takes a lot of energy to recycle these things and who knows if it's worth it in the end? Whereas composting food scrap is easy, fast and really works.

You said it...and according to the latest Wil-Son catalog they have an electric indoor composter that even apartment dwellers can use.

My mom lives in a town that gives out free composting bins. She has a giant set-up that she's quite proud of. I think it's scary and worry that she's go in there one day and find somebody dumped a dead body in her compost area. Talk about feeding the worms.
