Bloomberg Seeks To Require Food Composting In NYC

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to unveil a proposal to require city resitdents to compost their food, the New York Times reported Sunday. 

Bloomberg’s deputy mayor, Caswell F. Holloway IV, told the Times that the administration will soon announce that it is hiring a composting plant to take on 100,000 tons of food scraps annually, roughly 10 percent of NYC’s food waste.
