RecycleNOW Philadelphia (recyclenowphilly.org
) has some exciting news on an issue of great importance in our goal of achieving zero waste in the City of Philadelphia. City Council is holding a hearing on organics recycling on Wednesday, November 12 and we want you to be there!
A strong presence at this first hearing will demonstrate that a citywide food waste recycling program is a priority for the residents of Philadelphia and give us an opportunity to be active participants in the discussion from start to finish.
Did you know that compostable materials constitute roughly 23 percent of Philadelphia's waste composition? That's 507 pounds per ton of waste. This is a missed opportunity.
Attendees will have an opportunity to give testimony at this meeting. We strongly encourage you to:
