MPR aired this story about a month ago: Minneapolis to try curbside composting
The program promises to reduce the amount of garbage that goes into landfills, reduce the release of greenhouse gasses, and possibly provide a source of renewable energy.
- I checked the RENew Northfield site/blog but it appears dormant and nothing turned up in a search.
- Bruce Anderson is actively blogging at Sustainable Community Solutions but I could only find a link to the Wikipedia entry on composting.
- The Center for Sustainable Living evidently had a composting project that involved distribution of buckets with drop-off at the Farmer’s Market — but nothing new has been posted about it in over a year.
- St. Olaf has a new composter for all its food scraps. The Northfield News wrote about it two years ago.
So what’s holding us back?
