Description: As cities begin to comply with these organic waste diversion rates, they will have to face tough decisions when deciding how to fund new recycling programs. Raising the funds at a statewide level will allow for the funding of needed infrastructure without tough decisions at the local level. If the state is going to meet it's organic waste diversion mandates, significant investments in additional organics recycling facilities are needed.
