Let's cut our garbage hauling and landfilling costs by implementing a recycling and food waste reclaimation system. We gain revenue by selling metals, glass, paper, and plastics to recyclers and can use some of that revenue to collect all organic matter and send it to compost sites. This would reduce our hauling fees greatly, also saving energy by reducing the costs of transporting garbage. And creating healthy soil that can be distributed to the public or used in landscaping public buildings. Or better yet, for community gardens!
