New York Is Turning Food Waste Into Compost and Gas

If you missed the last meeting of the Manhattan Beach Community Group where a Department of Sanitation Speaker outlined the City’s Composting initiative, you probably still have questions about “why”- “when”–“how to”–“do I have to participate” and the reasons for the plan.
 
The web page, “How New York Is Turning Food Waste Into Compost and Gas” we are forwarding to you is from the New York Times.  You will find a complete explanation of the Composting initiative begun by NY City.   It informs you about “why”, “when”, “how to” and the City’s reasons for asking people to compost their garbage. 
Locally:  Composting for Manhattan Beach (Community Board 15) begins Monday, June 5th.  For those who have asked us if it is mandatory, the answer is not yet!  You will find everything you need to know in the article, your children might find the science discussion interesting, we encourage you to read it and make your own decision.
