Beverly Hills Residents Learn How a Kitchen Pail Can Reduce Methane Emissions
At city forum on climate action, Athens shares tips on recycling household food scraps
The City of Beverly Hills hosted a Climate Action Movie Night at Roxbury Park that featured food trucks, information booths, music, and activities – even Athens’ own Rocky the Recycling Raccoon stopped by. The main attraction was Ice on Fire, a documentary on climate issues, followed by a panel discussion that included Athens Services Sustainability and Zero Waste Programs Director Jessica Aldridge.
Jessica explained that since the new California state law SB 1383 went into effect on January 1, cities, including Beverly Hills, must have a plan to comply and help reduce methane emissions. In support of the new law, the City has provided Beverly Hills residents with kitchen pails. Athens provides curbside organics collection containers.
“You reduce those methane emissions every time you put your food scraps in the pail and take it out to your organics container,” Jessica said. “We make compost from them and other organics waste that you can use to grow healthy, resilient plants.”
Athens is working with cities like Beverly Hills to ensure they have the resources and training to meet SB 1383 requirements. Get tips on how to recycle food scraps with a countertop kitchen pail in your home.
