What can be done to support city efforts to fulfill AB1826, which has been in effect since April, and requires grocery stores and restaurants to divert organic waste from landfills?
Organic waste diversion is our future. When bottles/can recycling started, it took adjustments. Restaurants/grocery stores in Oceanside will have bear the cost of transportation and disposal. We cannot abandon local businesses. The city must collaborate with owners and identify best practices, incorporate into the budget and locate grants to create supporting infrastructure. If not, food prices will rise with costs and empty everyone’s pocketbook.
