Okay, so why can't they just do with it what every other plant waste is treated. I have 3 garbage bins (cans) that I put out every week, one for general garbage, one for recyclables, AND one for "green" waste, i.e. grass cuttings, branches from hedges and bushes, and small tree branches. These get shredded in a huge chipper/shredder and is all mixed together to make compost.
Now that it is classified as "organic" by the state, why can't this be added as well? Medium and large volume growers, I am sure, are already "throwing" it out, so why can't they put out small to large dumpsters, depending on the size of the grower, specifically for this stuff? They pick it up and put it through the same equipment. Even more compost.
