Description Managing residual organics in cities has been a major sustainability challenge of every historical civilization, with negative impacts ranging from nuisance odors and inefficient resource use to serious human health and environmental consequences. In spite of the technological progress achieved in recent decades, managing organic residuals remains a significant challenge, particularly as more programs have been established to recycle highly biodegradable food scraps.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
