San Luis Obispo County, Calif., is launching a new program that will turn food waste into energy. With the new program, 50,000 county residents will receive a food scrap pail for their food scraps, which will be collected, composted and turned into electricity at the new Kompogas Anaerobic Digestion Plant at Waste Connections on Santa Fe Road.
Residential food scrap pails will be distributed starting on August 15.
