Biodegradable organic material is a challenge for cities to deal with

Earth911 – The word “industrial” has negative connotations in environmental circles but when it comes to composting, there are benefits to scaling up. Thanks to industrial-scale composting facilities, about 8.5% of America’s organic waste is composted.
Compared to home composting, industrial-scale, commercial composting facilities can handle a very high volume of waste — including waste from residents who do not have the time or space to compost for themselves.
Active composting usually takes only a few weeks, but a large compost pile may take months to cool and be ready to use. The finished compost is often sold to the public to offset the cost of the program but the compost may also be used in public landscapes.
