Hi all, I just moved to Lake Merritt and was shocked to hear that my apartment building does not get regular compost picked up (despite having trash and recycling get picked up...shady??). Are there any pre-existing community gardens in the area that would be willing to take composted food scraps? I would even follow stricter composting guidelines so that my contributions would actually mean something. Having moved from Berkeley, then SF, and now to this neighbourhood, I feel incredibly wasteful and guilty for throwing food scraps into the trash.

Hi Helen,
I started this OaklandWiki page on Recycling, Compost & Trash.
Whatever you learn, could you please add to the page? I think there's a lot of confusion out there about what & where to discard things (and the City's multiple overlapping web pages add to the confusion!) I'm hoping to create a very clear and easy-to-use resource on the topic.

Thanks!
Joe
