Just a note to all Seattle area readers: are you composting your food scraps yet? Seattle has a truly exemplary program in place to reduce landfill by as much as 50% or more…if only we could get our seattleites to put their vegetable food scraps in their yard waste bins.
Sound easy? It is. Couldn’t be easier–we’ve been doing it now for several months and it’s a pretty sweet deal. We now have the smallest trash container allowed which means reducing our monthly solid waste bill, and we feel good about turning our estimated 10+ lbs. per week of veggie + fruit scraps into rolling hills of compost for our parks and gardens.
So, just do it. It’s simple and it works.
