San Diego’s organic food waste program

Great to see so many Californian residents getting to grips with separate food scraps collection.

The city is turning organic food waste and yard trimmings into compost as part of an effort to reduce climate warming methane emissions that come from landfill sites.

We understand that this is a real challenge, especially for people living in multifamily or downtown areas with limited storage space within their kitchens and communal trash areas – so we set out to make this easier.

We’ve found that bagging food scraps and providing hands-free cart housings to improve user interaction at every stage of the process will massively increase the proportion of organic material we divert from our trash stream.
