Garbage disposals aren't legal in Quebec. They put too much organic stuff into the waste water and the water treatment plants have to use more chemicals.
They aren't legal here in Barrie either. Most communities around here have banned them for the exact reasons you have stated.

We have green boxes for organics. They pick them up every week along with the blue box and the regular garbage. The contents of the green bins go to a special place at the landfill where it gets composted into mulch for the residents to pick up free during the spring and summer.

I hope you, MommaCat, and Lakisha feel better soon.

What is it with the sick this year? Everyone seems to be coming down with something.
Absolutely, Cat!!! You have to cough or you will get pneumonia, that you don;t want or you will spend New year's in the hospital. I know it hurts, but you need to do that!

That makes sense.

It depends on the city. My city has compostable collection for everyone who doesn't live in a condo or apartment. Montreal is phasing in compostable collection. I'm pretty sure that burning garbage is illegal.

I think the main concern about the garbage disposals isn't the environment, but the cost of the extra chemicals for water treatment.

I thought enzymes were supposed to do the same thing.
I don't really know a whole lot about this though, just what I hear.

You're slacking, Fi

Right now I am thinking about what prompted me to start dinner so late.
I better find a good movie.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by that. Enzymes to digest the organic matter in the water?

I don't know a lot about it either, but I know they say it costs more to process the sewage when there is extra organic matter from garbage disposals. I'm pretty sure it would be a bad idea to just dump that into the river, even if it was clean enough. Would probably cause something to reproduce out of balance.
