Hello BESTers,

More food waste news from the Northeast.  Connecticut is considering 
legislation to require commercial food waste generators to divert their 
food waste to composting or other recycling facilities.  The law will 
require large generators to start diverting by next year while all 
generators will have to divert their food waste by 2020.  Backers are 
hoping that this law will be a boon to the food waste recovery industry 
and help develop compost and biogas in the state.  Like all government 
regulations, the proposed legislation is not without its critics, but 
with or without laws, food waste must be addressed for us to become a 
sustainable society.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
