not to belabor these points, but a) Styrofoam is a different product entirely – having nothing to do with food service-ware; b) EPS wasn’t “banned” – EPS manufacturers were given a year to develop recovery/recycling system; and, c) the City did not use public health arguments as the basis for advancing the new law.
with respect to the commercial food scrap law, composting and food donation aren’t the only options – diverting it to anaerobic digestors for production of biogas prior to composting may end up being the most likely option, including the potential to take advantage of existing in-city infrastructure at the city’s water resource recovery centers (it’s not “wastewater” anymore).
best wishes for 2014
