Creative Ways to Compost

More

Ready to talk some trash and how it can help us toward a circular economy? Welcome to #CreativeWaystoCompost @zerowasteworkshop @nycsanitation #nyfoodwastefair hosted at @brooklynsolarworks

Big ideas:
* Add compost sites to parks and golf courses
* Community compost and training in all neighborhoods - increase awareness + provide #goodgreenjobs for local residents.
* Make our own fertilizer and reduce carting costs to haul it out
* @thetrashwalker digs into previous policy precedents with report and reward systems for solutions on participation. She also suggests reducing trash days and replace with compost and recycle days
* Businesses: Compost hauling is cheaper than waste hauling
Bigger questions:
* Why is the vast majority on #nyc waste infrastructure located in black and brown communities?
* Why do @nycparks not compost?
