Reducing Greenhouse Gases
Through Composting Organics
Landfills are a significant source of manmade
methane emissions in California. Methane is
created when organic materials, whether disposed
of or used as cover materials, decompose
anaerobically in landfills. Therefore, one way to
dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in
California would be to phase out compostable
organic materials such as yard trimmings and food
scraps from landfill disposal or use. In
addition, organic materials have numerous
benefits when returned to the soil, from
replenishing the soil, retaining water, helping
to prevent soil erosion, and treating stormwater,
among others. Join CRRA and industry experts as
we discuss the purpose and design of such a
policy and explore alternatives to organics disposal.
