Hosted by City of Napa / Recycling Division Tim Dewey Mattia will be presenting "Food Composting Programs" > The #1 reason households say they are not participating is that they put food waste in the garbage disposal. Unfortunately this is not a good option because food that goes down the drain ends up at the wastewater treatment plant, where removal of the food increases treatment costs. Also it is estimated that a household uses about 900 gallons of water annually just to wash food scraps down the garbage disposal!
COME AND LEARN ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF COMPOST USE! > The #1 reason households say they’re participating is that “Composting turns organic material into a rich soil amendment that can be used right here in Napa County.” At the same time, keeping organics out of landfills reduces production of powerful greenhouse gasses.
