Washington D.C. Introduces Bill to Require Schools to Reduce Food Waste

On October 22nd, the Council of the District of Columbia introduced B.506, the Zero Waste Omnibus Amendment Act of 2019. This act amends the Sustainable Solid Waste Management Amendment Act of 2014. It would require all public schools with at least 100 employees to dispose of “food waste” through vessel composting, meaning organic waste is enclosed in a drum, bin or container to produce compost that is maintained or disposed of under proper conditions. This bill has been referred to the Committee on Transportation and the Environment.
