A pop-up recycling and composting system was unveiled Wednesday in response to an abundance of litter left behind by picnickers at San Francisco’s Dolores Park.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, in partnership with the waste management company Recology, has placed large containers on Dolores Street where picnickers, with the aid of waste-sorting volunteers, will separate discarded items.
Recology spokesman Robert Reed said adding to the compost collected by Recology is one of the best things city residents can do to help conserve water.
