Oakland Council reaffirms composting policy

220x220_zero-waste
On March 18 the Oakland City Council adopted a resolution to implement new Waste Collection Franchise Policies.

This resolution requires bidders on the city’s waste-hauling contract and city staff to present viable options for mandatory source-separated composting services to all Oakland residents, including those in multi-family units. It also calls for family-supporting wages and bene­fits for recycling workers. These are ends that the Sierra Club Northern Alameda County Group has been actively working towards.

WhatYouCanDo

We  still do not know when the final waste-hauling contract will come back to the Council for a vote. At that time it will be important to make sure that full implementation of citywide compost service is included for all residences. So far the city has merely asked for a cost estimate; food-scrap collection service at no extra charge will only become a reality if city residents insist on it.

To make sure that you receive our alert when it is time to contact the Council again, go to http://action.sierraclub.org/site/PageNavigator/CHP_SFBay_SignUpThen sign up for “Updates and alerts from the SF Bay Chapter”.
