For the 25th Annual BioCycle West Coast Conference held in San Diego, CA, BioCycle implemented a plan to green the conference. A Green Team was formed to reduce waste and collect separate material streams for composting and recycling. One of the main challenges was to make sure the compostable stream collected was taken to a special 4-cubic yard debris bin provided by Waste Management for storage. On the morning of April 15, the dedicated 4-yard container with the food scraps was pulled and taken to the City of San Diego's Greenery, a large-scale windrow composting operation, for processing. Although the cornpostable materials were collected in green compostable bags, the Greenery does riot accept the bags for composting. Thanks to all the attendees who paid attention to what goes where, the level of contamination wasn't bad at all.
