[GreenYes] Re: Alternatives for handling food scraps

Hi Dan ~
Have you seen any comprehensive studies on the environmental impacts of collecting food and yard materials for processing and distribution from central sites?
Tthe transportation impacts, both to the sites, and then from the sites, seems large to me.
Our county food recovery plan goes along with your first recommendation -- compost it at home.
PS ~ A benefit of home composting is that the elimination of odor causing materials in the trash can. I put my trash out 2-3 times a year (60 gallon cart), by composting the putrescibles (I don't buy meat on bones.)

Next best is to use curbside food and yard debris collection; these centralized processing systems are proliferating all over the Bay Area right now.
