Vermont mandates composting, bans food scraps from trash
One state’s trash is another state’s treasure.

Vermont has officially mandated composting throughout the state, banning residents from tossing unwanted food scraps in the trash.

In a new law effective July 1, Vermonters are asked to save leftovers like peels, rinds, cores, eggshells, coffee grounds and tea bags from the garbage, plus unfinished “plate scraps” like bread, meat, veggies, fruit, dairy, sweets, sauces and food that’s gone bad. From there, people are instructed to compost the scraps, coordinate a curbside pick-up or drop them off at a composting site.

Great idea but...

Only problem is meat draws predators to the compost pile. Meat and dairy shouldnt be composted.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

"Citizens have the option of composting food scraps in their backyards, feeding them to animals, dropping off at a composting facility or using a composting pickup service. Many of the state’s trash services already offer compost pickup.

Trash companies that service commercial or apartment buildings will now be required to offer composting services..."

Re: Vermont mandates composting, bans food scraps from trash
Never compost meat or any animal product, it will ruin a good compost.
I garden and not in a mandatory state, but do it for my plants health.

It's smart, use less fertilizer and the dirt is so much healthier.
I think all states should mandate composting.

The only people against it are just lazy.

I just keep a plastic lidded coffee container by the sink, at the end of the day it goes to the compost bin in the back yard.

We never use lawn chemicals either so the lawn clips get composted also.

Re: Vermont mandates composting, bans food scraps from trash
This is important for Liberals because it enables RATS to multiply ... and occupy!!

It is important that Vermont become as vermin infected as Baltimore is!! since why should those in Baltimore be alone in their enjoyment of rats inside their homes, apartments, and businesses?

Let's just call this the "The FULL BELLY Food Program for Rats"
