Mandatory community-based curbside composting service requires citizens to pay for composting

Mandatory community-based curbside composting service requires citizens to pay for composting | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it
The next evolution of trash services requires citizens in some Colorado cities to pay for composting services.
The Organic Stream's insight:

Lafayette city in Colorado USA is beginning their mandatory composting service. A city-wide mandatory service will often experience some backlash, as evidenced here in this (slightly negative) report - and it is interesting to understand both how the topic is being framed, and people's concerns regarding mandatory composting.


Cost is of course a big factor, but the fact that there is no option to opt-out seems to be the central cause of frustration among some residents. Lafayette's Public Works Director does explain that recycling food waste will reduce the general waste volume and allow people to downsize their trash cart, but perhaps this is still not clear to all residents.


It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Lafayette, and we hope the city's composting program will be successful.
