storyofstuffSmells like Saturday morning!
The Berkeley Ecology Center collects food scraps and yard waste in the green bin from residences on a weekly basis...just like trash and recycling. The scraps are processed in Vernalis, California over a 10 week period before becoming finished compost. The finished product is a highly desirable garden treatment that some refer to as "black gold." The City generously makes about 5% of the finished compost available to residents, distributed once a month.
Which makes the compost pickup spot the hottest place to be of a Saturday morning!
Does your city have a municipal compost program?
