Palo Alto Compostables Pilot Program Planned

Two meetings will be held this week.

Do you think that Palo Alto needs to have a compostables collection pilot program?  If so, now is the time to get involved.

According to the city, “Approximately 44% of residential ‘garbage’ is organic material. Most of this material can be diverted from landfills and composted to create a useful, marketable soil amendment. Removing this compostable material, primarily food waste, from our garbage and creating compost from it can significantly help the community achieve its goals of Zero Waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

The first meeting will be held Wednesday evening, 7 p.m., at Cubberley Community Center in room H1. Cubberley Community Center is located at 4000 Middlefield Road.

The second meeting will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m., Lucie Stern Community Center, Community Room
1305 Middlefield Road.

For more information, contact Wendy Hediger, Recycling Coordinator, City of Palo Alto at (650) 496-5912.
