Composting Begins at BayCrest Towers

This past Wednesday, the San Francisco Department of the Environment set up a table at BayCrest Towers and handed residents their own 3 gallon compost buckets for their units (pictured below).
BayCrest is a 288-unit condominium mid-rise building built in 1991 on 201 Harrison Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.
Not wanting to stink up my little studio condo, I bought a box of the suggested Natur-Bag compostable food scrap bags at Cole Fox Hardware on 4th Street in the Yerba Buena neighborhood for $3.99 (20% off sale this week).
We started off with a relatively small container for compost at BayCrest Towers. It will be interesting to see how well used the compost container becomes. Since many of the units are small studios with an itty, bitty galley kitchen, I’d guess that many folks dine about town rather than cook at home (thus not creating much in the way of food scraps).
