Weekly Compactor: good news edition


This week in trash news:

  • City Room reports that Fresh Direct aims to deliver more food, less packaging;
  • Also from City Room/NYT: The electronics industry sues to block new recycling requirements (we take this as good news because that means the law is having an impact;
  • Wooster Collective posts trash-related street art from Flea;
  • Buffalo and Philly get Big Belly solar powered trash compacting recepticles; and
  • Missing Ohio kids found alive in the trash (morbid but true fact: while we almost never post them, we come across a lot of baby in the trash stories that end another way, it’s so refreshing to read a happy ending in this one).

    Hi Leila – I am enjoying the blog. I’m a little disturbed about the babies in the garbage – but am happy that the children in this story were found. I am learning a lot by reading this when a have a moment.
