Issues

20 Mile

Rule

20 mile rule for food scraps ONLY works if infrastructure exists and applies only to permitted

SW facilities

Animal Feed “Loophole”

Composters switching to animal operations as a regulatory loophole, which precludes permitting & sidesteps the 20 mile rule

Consistency of collection/available services

What each composter will take, and how, may be different -- recreates the recycling problem 148 was supposed to solve

Animal feed –

requires separation of meat, utensils, plastics

Bio-Plastics

Growing usage, but not eligible for “organic certification”

Slide12

Issues

Infrastructure/ Capacity

Current processing capacity falls short by several thousand tons – more infrastructure needed to meet demand

Anaerobic Digestion

AD could close the capacity gap, but investment & infrastructure are lacking

Contamination

Major source of expense for

composters

Carbon Sourcing

Paying

for carbon

amendments limits

margins and increases

costs

Costs

Haulers, among others, are concerned about unfunded mandates & new costs

Slide14

Capacity Gap

Compare to an estimated 60,000 annual tons of FS 60,000 > 6,186

Slide15

Takeaways

Intentions are good

Divert and recover materials according to highest and best use

Initial results good

Drop in MSW generation

Modest increase in diversion

Increase in food donation/source reduction

Issues of capacity/funding need to be addressed
