Curbside composting of kitchen scraps a success in Portland test neighborhoods 26.11.2010 PDX Green - A blog about sustainable living - The Oregonian -
If you hoped curbside food scrap collection would roll out to the rest of us this spring, that looks unlikely. Recology, which will transfer and compost the food scraps, still needs final permits from Metro, Washington County and the state Department of Environmental Quality for one of its food scrap composting facilities. The earliest that's likely to happen is fall 2011.
