TOS#31: We explore the new French compost label & quality standards by Compost Plus, and how they will transform the organics recycling industry in France. We also take a look at source separation in the country, and how the incoming law will bring sustainability closer than ever.
The Organic Stream's insight:

Episode 31 of The Organic Stream is out now! We’re in France this week with Thomas Colin of Compost Plus to learn more about the new compost label and quality assurance system they have designed, which is set to greatly elevate the quality and status of compost made from source-separated organics and create a new level of trust with compost users.

Thomas also gives us an update on the exciting events taking place regarding the Energy Transition Law which, if passed, will  transform the composting and organics recycling industry in France and bring source separation to the forefront.

Take a listen and enjoy!

GREENFIELD — The composting program Greenfield started a year ago this month is doing “OK,” but not as well as
The Organic Stream's insight:

We wish Greenfield every success in their composting program. As pointed out in the article, however, bringing food scraps to a central point is not as practical for householders as curbside collection would be.


Although it's only been a year since the service was opened, more will have to be done to bring people along if the town wants to achieve the goal 100% organics diverted from dumps in 2020  - either through education and awareness, or a change in the system to make it easier for people.


For more on education and awareness campaigns, why not take a listen to our interview with Bridget Anderson of the DSNY on their extensive education and outreach strategy for the curbside collection pilot program in New York City?

BioCycle Nationwide Survey: Residential Food Waste Collection In The U.S.

BioCycle Nationwide Survey: Residential Food Waste Collection In The U.S. | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it

"Interest in residential food waste collection is huge throughout the U.S. That interest is tempered, however, by the economics, logistics and politics in many communities, which can make implementation difficult. In the first part of BioCycle’s Nationwide Survey Report (“Taking States’ Pulse On Residential Food Waste Collection,” October 2014), many of these drivers and barriers were addressed on a state-by-state basis. Part II offers a glimpse into communities that are implementing curbside collection of food scraps."

The Organic Stream's insight:

Food waste collection is steadily growing in the US - 2.74 million households now with curbside collection schemes.


There is still a long way to go of course, (as pointed out to us by Michele Giavini on twitter, food waste collection in Italy is at 20 million households!), but we are excited to see how far and how quickly organics collection will spread in the upcoming years.
