The Washington, D.C. City Council unanimously approved the Residential Composting Incentives Amendment Act of 2017 on May 1. This bill establishes a rebate of up to $75 for District residents who purchase and install a home composting or vermicomposting system. The bill aims to promote residential composting while helping to divert food waste from D.C.’s waste stream. See link below.
Beware of building BIG facilities. When you do, you must justify their existence, financially. That means you gotta promote more consumption instead of less. A seriously sustainable program encourages individuals to take personal responsibility for their consumption and disposal habits. Hats off to Washington D.C. for encouraging individuals to compost at their homes.
