Disposers on the Way

The City Council is about to introduce a pilot program version of Intro 220, the bill that would have legalized the use of garbage grinders in commercial establishments. This culminates a three year effort on the part of the Alliance to find alternative methods of disposal for stores that are literally being weighed down by the escalating cost of garbage removal.

We're hopeful that the measure will be moved quickly and that the pilot can be up and running by early next year. As we have been commenting all along, the use of disposers has significant implications for improved and less costly methods of garbage disposal, methods that will be applicable to both commercial and residential sectors.
