From Food Scraps to Fine Wine
San Francisco and Norcal Waste Systems, the citys employee-owned recycling company, have rolled out the most innovative recycling program in America. Food scraps which would have ended in landfills are collected, and turned into high quality compost. The finished compost is applied to more than 30 Northern California vineyards including many in Napa and Sonoma counties. This one-of-a-kind recycling program is a model for municipalities world wide.
