2. Protecting the Environment
Some polls report that as many as 87% of Americans consider themselves to be “environmentalists”. In the 1960s and 70’s, the repulsion experienced regarding polluted rivers and lakes from the sight of dead fish and closed beaches gave rise to the various clean water acts and the wholesale upgrading of our nation’s wastewater treatment infrastructure. Smog and air pollution anxieties have lead to increasingly stronger versions of the Clean Air Act. When people see a direct cause and effect relationship between paying for environmental improvements and benefits, they will pay for the environmental value. People do not complain about the cost of pollution control systems in their autos, nor do they object to their monthly sewer bills. They see that these costs improve their quality of life.
After instituting recycling programs, bike lanes and banning yard trimmings from landfills during the 1990s decade of the environment, interest in the 21st century “Carbon Footprint” has us looking for new ways to become even more “eco friendly”.
Composting to the rescue!
Organics Management strategies deals with organic materials sent to the landfill, composting facilities, or land applied. Organics Management programs involve virtually every level of local and state government. New generations of bio-processing technologies go beyond simple composting programs in ways, which when properly implemented, can clean ground and surface waters, reduce smog, support local food production, enhance parks, beautify roads, reduce greenhouse gasses, promote renewable energy, reduce wastewater treatment expenditures, lower solid waste processing costs, stimulate bio-based industries and generally enhance the quality of life in a new generation of “low carbon footprint” community planning activities.
