I was looking through my cities newsletter today and they had a section on composting rules in it, they go as follows:
-Garbage, refuse, rubbish, waste matter, fecal material, and any matter of animal origin is not allowed (that eliminates a pretty good chunk of great composting material)
-Compost piles must be maintained or contained in a manner to prevent them from becoming a habitat for insects and rodents and creating objectionable odors. (Really??? How do you keep insects and animals away from your compost pile? Also, it's pretty impossible to have your compost not smell.)
I'm not going to follow these rules because obviously these lawmakers have no idea how you make good compost, and they're just making the dumps fill up more than they need to. I'll never understand what goes through lawmaker's heads. Does anyone else's city have draconian laws like this regarding compost?
