POL.226-Model Compost Procurement Policy: Accelerating Action to Close the Organics Recycling Loop-AC23.USCC

To date, closing the organics recycling loop by requiring compost purchases is an underutilized tool in municipal efforts to manage organic waste sustainably and cost-effectively. Composting is an effective way to reduce food waste in cities, by turning food scraps into a natural soil amendment that can be used in city gardens and landscaping and improve soil health and water retention, without the use of artificial fertilizers. This presentation will review the model policy created by NRDC and the Environmental Law Institute that municipalities can use to require the use of compost products where appropriate and go over other examples of how this is being implemented across the country.
