San Diego will spend $77 million on a large composting plant in Miramar to handle all the yard trimmings, food scraps and other organic material that city residents and businesses must begin recycling under a new state law. City officials say they expect the plant, which will be by far the county’s largest composting facility, to help other local communities and trash haulers comply with the new law, SB 1383.
Without the new plant, San Diego officials said they would have to truck organic recycling to composting facilities outside the region, a less environmentally friendly option that would make the city vulnerable to price increases at those facilities. The plant is scheduled to open in summer 2024. – San Diego Union Tribune,
