Seeking Feedback: Draft Compost Policy Guide

The Sustainable Economies Law Center has been researching compost law and policy in recent years. Learn more about our work here. In late 2016, we worked with Berkeley Law School's Environmental Law Clinic to produce a draft policy guide for policymakers in California. We plan to revise and expand upon this draft by the end of 2017, so we would greatly appreciate feedback. 

Please download and review this policy guide, then provide feedback below: Growing Compost: A Policy Guide to Preserving Critical Community Composting in California

Acknowledgments: The guide was largely authored by the UC Berkeley Environmental Law Clinic Student Clinicians Mae Manupipatpong, Noah Guiney, & Jenny Pierce, under the supervision of Ana Vohryzek-Griest, Environmental Justice Fellow & Claudia Polsky, Director. The guide builds on research by Brian Fink, Janelle Orsi, Travis Close, and Christina Oatfield, and includes input by Sarah Boltwala-Mesina.

Thank you!!
