DAVIS, Calif. — Banana peels, chicken bones and leftover veggies won't have a place in California trashcans under the nation's largest mandatory residential food waste recycling program that's set to take effect in January. The effort is designed to keep landfills in the most populous U.S. state clear of food waste that damages the atmosphere as it decays. When food scraps and other organic materials break down they emit methane, a greenhouse gas more potent and damaging in the short-term than carbon emissions from fossil fuels. To avoid those emissions, California plans to start converting residents' food waste into compost or


Food garbage from nearly 40 million people will be a bonanza for rats. Expect to be overrun with vermin in short order.

Maybe I’m missing something but hasn’t the decomposition of animals and minerals been going on for about 6 billion years and only now it is a problem to be solved by government mandates.

Just pass a law that says "you must clean up your plate" and that includes eating the banana peel. After all if they can demand you put a chemical compound into your body before you can go into the restaurant they can mandate you eat the peel or anything else left sitting around. I'm waiting for them to do something clever about dog poop.

The only positive I would expect is that this would end the wasting of cafeteria food in schools. It grated me to have to witness, while on duty, uneaten fruit and unopened milk cartons being casually dumped in garbage cans. That would not happen in Mexican schools.

The larger waste management companies and municipalities already install piping in their landfills to capture the Methane and use or sell it as fuel. And I suppose letting forest burn due to mis-management is a good thing because it's better to burn the forest rather than to let them decompose.

What the OP said. In metro areas of Cali rats are already a big problem - adding additional food sources will cause their population to explode. When I lived in the Bay Area I used to compost but stopped because I couldn’t keep the rats out. Costs for picking up garbage will increase also. I was already paying around $140/mo for pick up when I left last spring.

The looniest toon ever out of the morons in Sacramento. Food waste (please define) will go into the bin normally reserved for garden waste. I can see the bins knocked over while waiting for pickup - dogs, coyotes, and in some areas bears and other critters - will be attracted. Rats might have a hard time getting into the trash bins that are used, but once dumped - party on! And won’t the rotting that takes place in those bins produce methane? Are we supposed to put only vegetable trimmings, eggshells and such into these bins? Or will some be scraping plates and dumping moldy leftovers from their refrigerators? The possibilities are endless.

In Portland, we have been doing this for years. My waste management fees keep going up, while the frequency of my garbage pickup goes down. As i tear cardboard boxes apart to fit in the blue bin, i often wonder how much of my rapidly diminishing lifetime has been spent on these activities.

They mention mixing it in with cardboard. We have been recycling paper, cardboard, and plastic in that blue bin for decades. Apparently the idea is to eventually grind it up with the yard waste and food waste. And then what? Will it just lie there, rotting (making methane), until someone figures out where to use it. The cost for setting up this program will be no small item and, as usual, there will be hefty fines for noncompliance. Vermont was the first to do it. We have medium size cities with more population than the entire state of Vermont.

One more thing: What about those entities that dump their trash directly into dumpsters? Restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, hotels, apartment and condo complexes…etc, etc., etc…..? Our condo uses those and there is no separation. Everything, including discarded “stuff”, goes into the same dumpsters. Has for years. Supposedly the waste management company “sorts” it out.

Having lived in CA for the first 60 years of my life I can tell you it is the HOMELESS who do the most damage to recycle bins. They root thru t all the bins, take out what they think they want then, later, just pour all they decide to abandon back in a trash can (if you're lucky.) Often they just leave it all near the trash bins.

From an excellent RedState article posted today - mostly on the destruction of the rain forests in the Philippines to enlarge the nickel mining operations that supply that mineral for lithium batteries… and batteries used in electric cars. Excellent article. The writer goes on to talk about recycling: It is an amazing paradox, but it only adds to the growing list of claims and governmental reactions that have led to decisions that have had an adverse effect on the stated goal of saving the planet. So many examples spring to mind that you wonder how much longer the planet can survive the efforts made to save it from dying. In my state of Florida, I am seeing more communities abandoning the practice of curbside recycling. This is because what has been said for a generation is beginning to come to light; recycling most products has a negative impact on greenhouse emissions. Starting with the vehicles, which need to pick up the items – nearly 200,000 nationwide burning fossil fuels daily. Then there is the dirty secret that recycling plants are notorious air polluters. You can find that article here:

#20 I live in San Diego county and have been told by our waste collection company that the definition for what goes into the green waste bin is if it grows it goes. Bones, fat, meat, pizza boxes, etc. We are supposed to wrap everything in newspaper (I guess that this is to support this failing media) or paper towels. The other commenter mentioning coyotes is correct, we have a lot of them where I live and they will love the smorgasbord served in my neighborhood.

These supposed science worshippers don't even understand their own pet theories. The global warming claim is that carbon trapped deep in the earth is being released when we burn fossil fuels raising atmospheric CO2 levels. Decomposing vegetable matter will produce the same gas whether it is broken down in the stomachs of mammals or rots in the earth, or even in a compost pile. While alive the plants consume CO2 and produce O2, it is a cycle.

This makes exactly as much sense as telling people to eat bugs, rather than beef. It's a crime that the bacteria in a cow's stomach digests grass and produces a little methane and we get great beef to eat. It is much preferable to let the grass die and rot on the ground by being eaten by bacteria in the soil and releasing METHANE.

Full disclosure: I despise Steven Spielberg movies and dislike both Romeo and Juliet and the 1961 West Side Story (WSS) movie. For that reason, I take particular delight in noting that Steven Spielberg's remake of WSS may have enthralled critics, but no one is rushing to see it. And no wonder, given that it's so darn woke that parts of it are in a language most Americans don't speak, but Spielberg refused to include subtitles. Let me quickly get through my biases. I hate Steven Spielberg movies because I find them overblown, predictable, and incredibly boring. I also dislike the way he presents children.

President Joe Biden's nominee for the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate "gender advisers" for combat troops are critical to the United States' success, a position some veterans say is nothing more than a left-wing initiative that distracts from the military's core duties.

More than 1,500 previously classified JFK assassination files have today been made public, including documents about killer Lee Harvey Oswald's contact with a KGB agent two months before the shooting.

Experts have pushed back against claims that this weekend’s tragic tornadoes in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee can be clearly linked to manmade climate change. (snip) professor and climate economist Richard S.J. Tol of the University of Sussex explained why it is so difficult to connect weather events on the scale of a tornado to shifts in the Earth’s climate. “Tornadoes are small, rarely more than 3 kilometers in diameter. The most advanced climate models, however, cannot see things that are smaller than 9 by 9 km. Climate models can therefore tell us very little about tornadoes,” (snip) “Data are not great, but suggest that there is no upward or downward trend
