The Ukiah City Council will likely be voting again next month on whether to allow city residents to add kitchen scraps to their yard waste bins for composting.
Vice-Mayor Steve Scalmanini, who serves on the two-person ad-hoc committee discussing the future handling of the city’s food waste, said progress is being made toward a proposal that may be considered at the council’s April 15 meeting.
“We had our first meeting with all parties involved (on March 16), which included about 10 people: a couple of representatives from the city’s hauler (Ukiah Waste Solutions), a couple from the longtime composter in Potter Valley (Cold Creek Compost), two representatives from (Mendocino County), and four from the city,” said Scalmanini, describing the discussion as “lively.”
