[GreenYes] Re: Food outside the pipe.



I'm sure Matthew Cotton is correct that remaining digested solids from
Oakland food scraps processed at East Bay Municipal Utility District's
Oakland waste water plant could be composted or land applied. But due
to the absence of local composting processing capacity for waste water
treatment residue (including food scraps residue), and the shrinking
capacity/higher cost for land application, this material is increasing
sent to landfill as ADC (90% in 2005).
