Posted:So one thing I was really excited about in moving to SF was the urban composting program. Basically, you have a green bin. You put all your compostables in the bin and they pick it up once a week. Great, right?
Well, I overlooked one small detail: now I have a compost bin outside my apartment building. It stinks. There are black flies the size of small sparrows coming in my windows all the time. The smell can get nauseating. And even once emptied, the bin still stinks and still attracts the flies.
Did I mention the stink and the flies?
So yeah, I think urban composting isn't such a great idea, after all.
My alternative is this: In-sink garbage disposal. See, the entire idea of composting is to return organic matter to the biosphere, rather than burying it in a landfill where it sits and does nothing. An in-sink disposal reduces organic waste to tiny particles that can then be easily broken down by bacteria or filter feeders and returned to the biosphere. It's also more convenient and it doesn't cause stink and flies.
So I won't be composting. I'll be throwing it down the drain with the grinder on.
