Seattle Could Recycle Food Waste

NPR reports that Seattle residents will soon be able to recycle food waste. The city has started distributing large wheeled bins to residential customers. Food waste makes up nearly 40% of garbage, the city officials estimate. Not all food can go into the new bins. Meat, dairy products and grease are not allowed. Mayor Greg Nickels says Seattle leads the nation in recycling, but the new food recycling program will take reuse to another level. :: NPR Story [by Justin Thomas]
