As a resident of <CITY NAME>, I would like to have access to a composting service, like Food2Soil, which can compost my food scraps for me. Unfortunately, this is not possible until the City changes local policies and allows community scale composters to offer neighborhood dropoff programs to residents.
There are so many benefits to composting. lt heals our soil so that it can retain water and grow more food. It also keeps food waste out of the landfill. Community scale composters create localized channels for the exchange of foodscraps between residents and growers thus keeping the intrinsic value of that resource within the local community. They transform that wasted resource into nutrient-rich soil and jobs, while reducing greenhouse gases. Unfortunately, not all of us are able or willing to compost for ourselves. So it makes perfect sense to be able to pay someone to do the composting for us.
You can learn more about the policy barriers inhibiting community composting by going to this webpage. Please consider allowing Food2Soil and other small scale composting businesses to offer pick up services and/or dropoff programs in our area.
Thank you for considering my comments on small scale composting solutions.
