Mandatory laws are always controversial but Vermont has recently passed 
a law House Bill 485 that will phase in mandatory recycling and 
composting of food and organic waste for residents by 2020.  Hopefully 
this will set the stage for other states to follow suit.

Also here is a company called Ogracure from Holland that aims to reduce 
food waste with a product that improves the shelf life of fresh produce 
while also reducing pesticides and bacteria.
