How to Make Organics Recycling "Business as Usual"
E-mail Print

ORGANICS recycling and reuse is becoming business as usual in regions where compost utilization has been institutionalized to provide green infrastructure services. “Green infrastructure” means using natural systems (such as soil and vegetation) to provide services that supplement or replace built system services, e.g. for storm water management, water and air quality, energy conservation, climate mitigation and adaptation, water conservation, waste recycling, and food security. The challenge for the future is not “what can we do with all this waste” but “how can we get enough compost to meet the demand for these essential services.”
